When Emperor Hadrian made history
Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987, Hadrian's Wall is the most popular tourist attraction in Nothern England and we owe it all to one man...
Around AD 122, during Emperor Hadrian's reign he ordered that a wall be built to act as a defence tool. The structure was most likely planned before Hadrian's visit to Britain (although he was happy to take all the glory) and he was clever to include gates along the Wall acting as customs posts.
