In AD 122 the Roman Emperor Hadrian ordered the building of a wall across the country from the Tyne to the Solway to separate the land of the Britons from the land of the Picts. This wall then marked the northern frontier of Rome's huge Empire. Today it is a World Heritage Site, with the surrounding countryside forming a stunning background and offering miles of exhilarating walks. See http://hadrianswallcountry.co.uk/ for more information.
