This article reviews lattice QCD results for the light hadron spectrum. An overview of different formulations of lattice QCD with discussions on the fermion doubling problem and improvement programs is given. Recent developments in algorithms and analysis techniques that render calculations with light, dynamical quarks feasible on present day computer resources are summarized. Finally, spectrum results for ground state hadrons and resonances using various actions are summarized.
