The Romans were in Britain from the 1st to the 4th centuries. In the 2rd century they built a great wall along the northern border because of the Celts who were attacking from the north. It gets its name from the Roman emperor Hadrian who ordered its construction. Hadrians wall is about 120 kilometres long. Parts of the wall,about two metres high and three metres wide,still stand. Many tourists go to see the wall.
