Discover history 

From a Roman leader to a local antiquarian - Hadrian's Wall has certainly seen some things during its time and can now include being the star of a few Hollywood movies, such as Macbeth, and TV series Vera. There's many reasons why this is a World Heritage Site and why the National Trust works hard to conserve it.
