Prominent in Carlisle is the Citadel, which was built by Henry VIII as a defensive structure but was of little practical use. It was built in the times of war with Scotland, which clearly had gone on for many centuries as evidenced by Hadrian’s Wall - similarly erected for the same purpose in Roman times.

The Cathedral, begun by Norman builders, has many grey stones from Hadrian's Wall mingled with the local red clay, more recently archaeologists have found remains from the Viking era.

Birdswold Roman Fort, from which a road led north to the outpost fort at Bewcastle has some of the best Roman remains to found in this historic region.

By far the most important monument left by the Romans in Britain, is nearby Hadrians Wall, which stretches the whole breadth of England from the Solway Firth all the way across to the North Sea.
