Hadrian’s Wall | Vindolanda, Chesters Fort, Milecastle 39, Housesteads | One of the marvels of the north of England, Hadrian’s Wall was built by order of Emperor Hadrian between AD122 and 130. This spectacular fortification ran for 73 miles from the Tyne to the Solway Firth. Guard posts known as milecastles were attached to the wall and 16 forts were eventually built to house soldiers.
