Hadrian's Wall - Milecastles

When the Romans first built Hadrian's Wall, in the northern part of Britannia (England), they also constructed many different "milecastles" along its route.  Today, the ruins of some of those ancient forts remain.

In this clip - from "Roman Frontiers - Hadrian's Wall" - we see what's left of the wall and its milecastles.  Computer-generated images and animations also help us to understand how those milecastles appeared when they were in use.
