English Heritage

  • Description

    A Hadrian's Wall monolith. These things don't actually hum (think 2001: A Space Odyssey...) but they sprang up all along Hadrian's Wall to remind the visitor multilingually that it was, well, Hadrian's Wall that they were seeing. They all say pretty much the same thing (although the site name is obviously different in each case) but, after a while, when you've seen a dozen of them, they become strangely annoying. Bizarrely, the main body of text is centered.
