|Hadrian's Wall in 2015|
In the year 122 AD construction began on a wall that would divide the Roman empire from what they viewed as barbarians to their north. The Emperor Hadrian attempted to draw a dividing line at the edge of the empire he ruled near its historical height. He commanded three Roman legions representing about 15,000 men to build a 73 mile long wall that ran across the width of northern Britain. Over 200,000 tons of stone were used to build Hadrian's wall. Milecastle forts were built at one mile intervals along the walls' length. Each Milecastle fort could hold a garrison of about sixty soldiers. Construction of the wall required at least six years -- there are multiple estimations of the time required to complete the wall from six to fifteen years.
