Hadrian's Wall - "The Borders was the most fortified and un-governable region in Europe. At one stage Queen Elizabeth I had ideas about re-instating Hadrian’s Wall as a buffer against the lawless northern edge of her realm. The Borderers were rugged and tough and enforced their own brutal code of conduct. They had no allegiance to either Scotland or England and changed sides at will. Their loyalty was to their clan. They became known as the Border Reivers." quote fm Borders Tourist Network.

HADRIAN'S WALL: a defensive fortification begun in 122 AD, during the rule of Roman emperor Hadrian, to keep the barbarian Scots out of Roman-occupied Britannia. It stretched across the width of Great Britain just south of the present day border with Scotland; it was the first of two such walls built across Great Britain.
