Hadrian's Wall in northern England has long been a tourist attraction, but souvenirs, highlighted in a new book by Roman expert David Breeze, shows that the wall attracted tourists soon after it was built. (photo)

The First Souvenirs: Enamelled Vessels from Hadrian’s Wall, tells the story of three Roman artifacts: The Rudge Cup, Amiens Patera and the Ilam Pan, created shortly after the wall was constructed and bearing the names of forts along the western sector, from Bowness-on-Solway to Great Chesters.
