From Archaeologia Aeliana, v19 third series. This article from 1921 has the most beautifully drawn maps to trace George RB Spain's proposed line of the earthwork.

( 'Keys to the Past' has given the grid reference near Sewingshields, so that's the one I've given here too. It seemingly follows the line of the wall up to Kingscrag Gate and beyond.)
