  • Lanercost Priory

    Lanercost Priory may look serene nowadays, but back then it suffered multiple attacks during the Anglo-Scottish wars and was made headquarters of Robert Bruce of Scotland where several Augustinian priests were held as prisoners.

  • Hadrian's Wall

    Spanning up to 80 miles and built by a whopping 15,000 soldiers, Hadrian's Wall is one of mankind's greatest engineering feats back in the day. Learn more about the history behind this fortress, why it was built and how life was like on the wall.
