Roman History

Roman Limits

The Roman Hadrian’s Wall.

When in the northern parts of England it is worth visiting the historic Hadrian’s Wall stretching across the green lands of natural beauty in the counties of Cumbria and Northumberland. This regions wild and majestic landscape, its dramatic crags and gaps had the wall constructed, similar to the Great Wall of China. The Romans constructed this wall spanning the width of England, near the now border of Scotland to curtail activities of the then Barbarians in their drive Southward.

There are a number of sites to visit showing firsthand accounts of Roman life at the time, you are able trace the footsteps of soldiers of the time with a good collection of recently found artifacts. One site Vindolanda is a typical location of the ruins of a Roman fortified Town complete with running water, granaries, shops, houses and Strong Rooms. Read the story of the intrigue of archaeologists, finding a young girls body buried beneath the soldiers barracks, see the Gladiators Glass and the coins all uncovered on the well laid out and presented site.

Enjoy a discovery day with EuropeDriving Holidays taking in the discovered Roman towns, forts and the still remaining wall that stretches across the rolling sheep country. Walk the wall or enjoy a coffee or lunch in one of the many restaurants along this historic monument. Whether it be raining or sunshine this is a worthy visit on the way North to Scotland.

Napoleon hunted by Red coats

Red coats who crushed at Waterloo

200th Anniversary – 18th June 1815

South of Brussels is the small town of Waterloo; renown for the famous battle involving 70,000 French blue coats with their 250 cannon’s and breast plated cavalry came up against the similar number of Red coats of Wellington’s army which were massed uphill.

The day was long and carnage across the battlefield enough to make the Iron Duke weep, 50,000 were slaughtered this day which saw the French ebbing towards another field victory. Fortunately for the Allies the 50,000 black shirted Prussians arrived late in the afternoon to save the day as Boney (Napoleon) had to dispatch 10,000 of his French Imperial Guards shock troops to his flank to meet Blucher’s newly arriving Prussian force, taking the momentum from his earlier manoeuvre on the Red coats in the British lines.

With withering musket volleys of fire the Red coats eventually found a chink in the French line and with the cry ‘up and at em!’ bayonets fixed the final allied push of the day was victorious but bitter sweet as bodies lay pilled upon one another.

Following the battle unwelcome plunderers combed the battlefield stealing anything seen as valuable, this included some that pulled teeth from still warm corpses which were sold to make sets of dentures for years to come.

This last battle put pay to Napoleon’s ambition to rule and conquer, there was sadness in Britain, Austria, Prussia and Russia as the knowledge sinks in of the great loss of life to rid Europe of this tyrant once and for all.

Red coats hold the line

Visit past battle fields in person, experience Chateau Hougoumont, the house La Haye Sainte (where Red coats and Nassau troops stood their ground) the 10 miles of road to Brussels where many an injured soldier trudged to seek help.

Talk to EuropeDriving Holidays to walk, talk and feel the landscape of this titanic battle from the past.
