Top sigths of Great Britain
London is the oldest city in the country. It was founded yet during the times of the Roman Empire, and at that time London was known as Londinium. There are several buildings that remind of first settlers and that period in the history of the city. The border with Scotland is the location of a very interesting landmark – Hadrian’s Wall. The wall was built in the 2nd century by order of Emperor Hadrian and was named after him. The purpose of the wall was to protect the city from barbarian attacks. City gates in Colchester and Lincoln have survived till our days. These ancient cities also feature ruins of historic buildings, old temples and protective facilities.
