For the Ancient Romans, Hadrian's Wall marked the very edge of the civilized world. Completed in 128 AD, the remarkable wall, built on the orders of the Emperor Hadrian, marked the northern border of the Roman Province of Britain. Possibly inspired by traveler's tales of the Great Wall of China, it began as a single wall but evolved in the building, and by the time it was finished, it had become a complicated defensive system. The wall runs over 115 miles from the east to the west of England and provides a fascinating glimpse of military life during the Roman occupation. Vivid, authentic reconstructions, 3D graphics and animation, recent location footage, as well as interpretation, analysis, and commentary by leading authorities allow viewers to witness how the wall might have looked in its glory.
