Hadrian’s Wall

Hadrian's Wall was constructed over a period of six years by order of the Emperor Hadrian, who came to Britain in AD 122.

According to one of Hadrian's Roman biographers it was built to 'separate the Romans from the Barbarians' a feat it achieved for over 250 years. Today, the area between South Shields and Ravenglass is studded with forts, milecastles, temples and turrets. These 2000 year-old remains are brought brilliantly to life by museums, reconstructions and fascinating visitor centres, all with something different and all waiting to be discovered.
