The Roman period saw the most extraordinary meeting of cultures that has ever occurred in this country. Emperor Hadrian built his wall right across the North and sent huge numbers of soldiers from all over the Empire to defend it.
The Romans brought their ideals, beliefs, architecture and art to a previously unruly land populated by warring tribes. Angela Bruce discovers what happened when these two worlds collided nearly 2000 years ago.
