Housesteads

The postcard this week comes from Housesteads on Hadrian´s wall in Northumbria in England. When you have a large empire to rule you need to have order and a standard layout was used on most forts in the Roman empire, adapted of course to the place where they were built. In the picture above one can see remnants of the buildings of the Roman fort at Housesteads in Northumbria, England.The wall was built by the Romans in the second decade AC. The picture is taken april 2017.
