Hadrian The Best Builder Ever

hadrian's wall northumberland
This wall is not far from my cottage. Now it may not look remarkable but it is because it was built in AD122 on the command of Emporer Hadrian of Rome (Hadrian's Wall otherwise know as The Roman Wall). Now how many builders do you know who could build something that would stay up this long?
In the second image you will see an explanation of what the wall was for and how long it was.
