Hadrian’s Wall

Monday August 18 2014

Today we drove 2 hours North to see Hadrian’s Wall. Hadrian’s Wall was a defensive wall in Roman Britain. It was begun in 122 ADphoto-17 during the rule of emperor Hadrian. Hadrian’s Wall was 75 Roman miles or 73.0 mi long. Hadrian was the first to build a wall 80 miles long to separate the Romans from the barbarians. Construction probably started in 122 and was completed in six years.
