On the Road . . . Hadrian's Wall

Hadrian's Wall was a defensive fortification built by the Romans in northern England during the rule of emperor Hadrian. Begun in AD 122, it was largely completed within 6 years.

However, much has been dismantled over the years to use the stones for various nearby construction projects.
