Roman soldiers defending Hadrian's Wall against an attack by the Scots

Roman soldiers defending Hadrian's Wall against an attack by the Scots. The wall proved to be an impregnable barrier. For the first time, the Scots were trapped in their own wild country and the Romans and Britons could go about their business in safety. Original artwork for illustration on p25 of Look and Learn issue no 848 (15 April 1978).

Hadrian's Wall

Pictured here is a map of Hadrian's wall, to give a scope of how far it stretched across Britain. As you can see in the map it is really impressive how far it stretched and how it was constructed in 122 AD by orders of Emperor Hadrian. The purpose was to divide the Roman Empire from the unconquered barbarians of the north. WIKIPEDIA
