Roman rites on Hadrian Wall night



Roman rites on Hadrian Wall night, originally uploaded by Fi – spring is sprung (sleepycat-gallery.com).

They came, they saw and they clambered on the ramparts – in numbers not seen on Hadrian’s Wall since the Romans called it a day and pulled out their legions 1,600 years ago.

Drawn by the first-ever lighting of the 70-mile monument from end to end, thousands of visitors filled every local car park, lay-by and footpath, while helicopters and a Nasa satellite recorded the necklace of beacons from above. [from the Guardian online write up]
