Details

David Frye explores the historical significance of walls and barriers, especially the way they separate and subdivide cities, empires and nations. There have been ‘Great Walls’ throughout history, from Persia, Rome and China to Central America, while mysterious labyrinthine complexes have been discovered in remote deserts. As the role of borders comes under increasing scrutiny today, Frye suggests the symbolism of walls has become an integral part of human understanding.
