Hadrians Wall

You remember that thrilling scene at the beginning of the first Lord of the Rings, when they light a bunch of flaming pyres across the land and it’s really dramatic and cool? A bunch of people in England did the same thing by lighting torches along the ancient Hadrian’s Wall, which used to protect Romans from the barbarous Scots. The Guardian has video, it’s pretty cool.
