Hadrian's Wall is a 73-mile stone barrier built by the Roman Emperor Hadrian on the northern border of Brittany beginning in 122 A.D. and cutting entirely across northern England from the North Sea to the Irish Sea. A well-maintained historic walking trail follows the wall's ruins through the countryside and several small villages, with some sections passing through the cities of Newcastle and Carlisle. The ruins of numerous forts, milecastles, turrets and earthworks bring this major feat of Roman engineering to life. The path also leads to friendly local pubs, market towns and plenty of breathtaking views.
Durfee, one of only three American-born members of The Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle upon Tyne, has been leading guided group excursions along Hadrian's Wall since 2010.
