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 AD 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.
