H is for Hadrian’s Wall

I just learned about Hadrian’s Wall when I went to the Hancock Museum in January.  I saw artifacts from the site there.  Still never ceases to amaze me how much history, and really old history, we have in the North East.

Hadrian’s Wall (Italian: Vallo di Adriano, Latin: Vallum Aelium – the Latin name is inferred from text on the Staffordshire Moorlands Patera) was a defensive fortification in northern England. Begun in AD 122, during the rule of emperor Hadrian, it was the first of two fortifications built across Great Britain, the second being the Antonine Wall, lesser known of the two because its physical remains are less evident today.
