Hadrian’s Wall

The most unique trip I’ve taken so far was to “walk the wall” in northern England with my sisters and friend, Catherine.  Hadrian was a Roman emperor who built a wall in his along the northernmost boundary of the Roman Empire to keep out the wild men of the north!  The walk is a World Heritage Site that spans 84 miles from Newcastle Upon Tyne to Carlisle.  You can still see parts of the original wall and ruins of one of the garrisons.

This color set is inspired by the gorgeous expanses of green sheep pastures and the rich brown color of the soil.
