Building Hadrian’s Wall

Back in 2008 we were involved in developing an interactive virtual Hadrian’s Wall for the Great North Museum, an exhibit that allows visitors to create a digital brick to place within the wall. Since Hadrian’s Wall is six metres high in places and over 112km long, that’s a lot of bricks.

When Phil made a follow-up visit recently he felt it was high time he made his own mark, placing the 178,362nd stone in the wall. This stone sits 14.2km along the wall, some impressive progress in terms of visitor engagement but still a long way to go to cross the breadth of the country.
