Hadrian’s Wall is situated in the place where Scotland meets England, from west to the east coast. It was 4,5 m tall in Roman period and it was built 2000 years ago. The cathedral in Durham is popular because it should have protected the people against the king. There is a famous knocker. The poor people came to the gate, knocked it, was let in (vpušteni) and so they saved the life.
