I describe progress made by the Hadron Spectrum Collaboration in understanding the role that excitations of the gluonic field play in determining the spectrum of hadrons. This is achieved through calculations of the hadron spectrum using lattice QCD techniques. Clear signals for the lightest set of hybrid mesons and baryons are presented, and a proposal that they correspond to the same chromomagnetic excitation is made. The prospects for studying the decay properties of excited hadrons are briefly discussed.
