Hadrian’s Wall

On Monday morning, we departed York for Edinburgh. We stopped at Hadrian’s Wall in northern England en route. Emperor Hadrian had this wall built in the 2nd century to fortify the Romans against the “barbarians” in the north. There are ruins of a Roman fort called Housesteads near the wall. It’s a little bit of a climb up a couple of hills past a lot of sheep to the wall, but the view of the English countryside from the top is totally worth it!
