Hadrian’s Wall (2018)

Hadrian’s Wall extended from coast to coast across the width of northern Britain. It ran from Wallsend in the east to Bowness on the Solway Firth in the west. Most likely Emperor Hadrian (ruled 117–138 ce) desired to preserve the Roman Empire’s integrity by supervising barbarian migration into the province of Britain and controlling customs. The exact motivation for building this frontier of the Empire have been lost in time.
Most parts of Hadrian’s wall have either disappeared or have become a tourist attraction, yet the archaic motivations for building borders stay intact and visible. Tribal thinking and the virtue of the herd, social inequalities and latent violence still leave their traces on the canvas of a nature completely indifferent to human enterprise.
It is a nice walk though.
