Traces of the Past

Our recent walk along the Hadrian’s Wall National Path in north England was a bit of a scavenger hunt for traces of the past, specifically sign of Roman Britain.

Sometimes it could be seen in the shape of the land, with lines just a little too straight to be natural, or bumps and lumps where there were none others nearby of the same shapes.

At other times jagged stone piles jutted out.

At the easiest times the National trust provided outlines of what was where and informative signs that made it easy.
