A historic discovery in plumbing was beneficial to Britain’s World Heritage. A new section of the historic Hadrian’s Wall was discovered by chance in England.
According to ISNA and quoted by Artnews, the workers of the water supply network discovered a new part of the “Hadrian’s Wall” during the piping in the center of Newcastle city in the northeast of England.
This part of the wall, which is about three meters long, was discovered after about 2,000 years and at a small depth from the street level. This part of the wall is just a small part of the wall that once covered England’s west to east coasts.
Archaeologists believe that due to the large stones used to build this part of the wall, this part was built earlier than other parts; Because with the passage of time and the expansion of this wall, smaller stones have been used.
Hadrian’s Wall was built in 122 AD by order of the Roman emperor Hadrian. The construction of this wall took six years. Located on the northernmost border of the Roman Empire in Britain, the wall was built to counter the invasion of the Picts and other Celtic tribes living in the north.
The Hadrian’s Wall was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1987.
Hadrian’s wall, according to the materials available for its construction, is 3 meters wide and 5 to 6 meters high in the eastern part of the river, which is made of stone, and 6 meters wide in the western part of the river, where clods were used for its construction and were 3.5 meters high. At its highest point, the wall was the size of a double-decker bus. Also along the wall, there were small castles with two towers that were used for guarding and signaling.
Hadrian was 117 km long and connected Valsad and Bowens on both sides of the island. In other words, it was the border between England and Scotland.
