The wall - Rome's northern frontier

The Wall: Rome’s Northern Frontieris a Lego model of Hadrian's Wall, a former defensive fortification in Roman Britain built between around AD 122 and AD126, during the rule of the eponymous Emperor Hadrian. The Wall stretched some 120km between the Solway Firth in the west to the Tyne Estuary east and when in use was effectively the northern limit of the Roman Empire. In 1987 the remains of the Wall were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and in 2005 it became part of the transnational Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site. The model is roughly sixteen square metres in size and was built on 105 48x48 stud Lego baseplates.

 

The Wall: Rome’s Northern Frontier is a Brick to the Past creation built by James Pegrum, Jimmy Clinch, Simon Pickard, Steve Snasdell, Dan Harris and Barney Main. It was unveiled for the first time at the Great Western Brick Show in October 2015 and will be on display again at London's Brick 2015 in December. You can view more photos in our Flickr Group.
