Idea #325 – Exploring Hadrian’s wall in Scotland
The Hadrian’s Wall (, Hadrian waw it scots, Vallum Aeliumnote in Latin) is a wall border strengthened, set up stone and in peat. It was built from 122 AD by the Roman legionaries of Hadrien, after the visit of the Emperor in Brittany, to protect the South of the island of the attacks of the New Caledonian tribes of the current Scotland. With its 4,5 meters in heights and its 2,7 meters in width, the Hadrian’s Wall extended over 117 kilometers, of the river Tyne in the East until Solway Firth on the West. At regular intervals, it was strengthened by turrets, by fortified places and by forts. It is about one of the last vestiges of the Roman presence in this region. An important part of the wall always exists, in particular in the central part of lands, and the wall is still feasible on foot. It is about one of the last vestiges of the Roman presence in this region. In 1987, the Hadrian’s Wall was registered on the UNESCO world heritage list.
