Beddy Visits… Hadrians wall

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

I’m on the East coast of England today in Wallsend in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. A very famous British wall runs through this town.

For 400 years Britain was ruled by the Great Roman Empire, most Britions were happy to live their lives the Roman way but people from the North were not as open to the idea. More than 1,800 years ago the Romans built Hadrians wall which was used to monitor the activities of people entering and leaving England and Scotland. All who lived inside the wall were believed to be Romans and all outside were viewed as barbarians.

The wall stretched 73 miles from one side of the country right across to the other. It was 15 feet high and 10 feet wide, some of the wall can still be seen today. The wall is such an amazing site I love learning about the history of our country.
