One of the most significant Roman ruins in England and one of the most visited tourist sites in northern England, Hadrian’s Wall bisects the country from the North Sea in the east to the Irish Sea in the west. It was constructed in AD 122 when the Roman Emperor Hadrian took over the empire and was keen to protect Roman Britain from the barbarians in the north. Many people wrongly believe that the wall marks the border between England and Scotland but it doesn’t – that lies a mile north of the western end of the wall and over one hundred miles north of the eastern end of the wall.
