Emperor Hadrian slept here!

Producers of the BBC's Timewatch program are hoping to prove that the Roman emperor Hadrian once stayed near his stone creation. This summer, archaeologists will dig along Hadrian's Wall looking for evidence of why the wall was built and where the Emperor might have stayed.

"Vineet Lal, director of branding and communications for Hadrian’s Wall, said: 'The Timewatch production team admitted that they had only previously scratched the surface where Hadrian’s Wall was concerned.

'They were genuinely surprised by some of the beautiful scenery in Cumbria and North East England and their filming has captured perfectly the landscapes that surround Hadrian’s Wall with stunning aerial photography.'"
