In AD 122 the Roman Emperor Hadrian commanded his army to build a great wall to mark the edge of the civilised world. Spanning 80 miles from coast to coast the wall was built to separate the Romans of Britannia in the south from the barbarians of Caledonia to the north. The Wall remained the north-west frontier of the Roman empire for almost 300 years and was home to regiments of infantry and cavalry. Today it is a World Heritage Site and is the most famous of all the Roman Empire frontiers.
