Hadrian's Wall, England

Photograph by Emile Luider, Cosmos/Redux

Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland is far and away the most important relic of Roman rule in Britain. Its sheer size (73 miles long) means that huge numbers of archaeologically priceless items have been excavated on, under, or near it. Here, visitors explore the well-preserved site of Housesteads Fort, perched right on the edge of the Whin Sill cliffs.
