Hadrian's Wall is a stone or turf and timber fortification built by the Roman Empire across the width of northern England.  The wall was 73.5 miles long and up to 20 feet high and up to 20 feet wide.  It was begun under the Roman Emperor Hadrian after a visit to the area in 122.  It was south of the Antonine wall which is in Scotland and is not as well preserved.  The wall consists of the wall itself, berms and forts.  I was there in the winter with a friend and continuously thought about the conditions under which the soldiers must have lived.  It was cold.
