Roman ruins

This is the site of a fort along Hadrian’s Wall. The only part left is a stone foundation, so you can roughly see how it would have looked like. It was on the top of a hill (obviously that’s a good place for a fort to be, so you can see everything around you and be on the lookout for any threats). The sun was shining, but other parts of the sky were cloudy, casting interesting shadows across some of the landscape. The sight from that hill was absolutely amazing. It was so cold that day, and the light snow stung our skin because the wind was blowing it against us so hard. I can’t imagine living in one of these forts back when the only thing they would have had to keep warm was fire!
