Hadrian Duvarı (England
The Hadrian’s Wall or Roman Wall is a set made of stone during the Roman Empire, which divides modern England into two in the east-west direction. The wall is the second of the three fortifications built in England. Gask Ridge is the province and Antonine Wall is the third. All three walls were built to the north to protect the economic order and security of the British Empire under the rule of the Roman Empire, from the influx of the Scottish northern tribes, and to the northern borders of the empire. The Hadrian Wall is one of the most well-known of all that can best protect its physical presence within these three walls.
A view from Hadrian’s Wall
In 117 AD, Emperor Hadrian arrived at the end of the empire expansion and decided to strengthen the borders of the new emperor’s country. During his visit to Britain in 122 AD, Hadrian ordered a wall between the Solway Firth in the west of Britain and the River Tyne in the east to protect the northern barbarian from the invasions. Besides being the most fortified wall of the wall empire and forming the northern borders of England, it functions as a customs gate and taxation point.
An important part of the wall, especially the middle part, is still standing. It is the most popular tourist destination in Northern England. The wall was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1987.
