Description

A milecastle was a small fort (fortlet), a rectangular fortification built during the period of the Roman Empire. They were placed at intervals of approximately one Roman mile along major frontiers, for example this one, which is Milecastle 39 on Hadrian's Wall in Great Britain.Begun in 122, Hadrian's Wall itself is a stone or turf and timber fortification, 73.5 miles (117 km) long, built by the Roman Empire across the width of what is now northern England, from Newcastle upon Tyne to Carlisle. It is estimated that it took 6 years to complete, and although temporarily abandoned in the years after Hadrian's death it was later reoccupied and remained the main northern defensive barrier for up to 10,000 Roman troops until their withdrawal from Britain.Hadrian's Wall was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.In 2003, a National Trail footpath 84 miles (134.5 km) long was opened which follows the line of the wall from Wallsend on the east coast to Bowness-on-Solway on the west.More images of Hadrian's Wall:
