Entry for September 13, 2006

I am adding another link for the USS Houston CA 30. This link will take you to a special collection at the University of Houston. There are many digitalized resources about the ship and her crew available there. Photo is Copyright © 2000, University of Houston Libraries. http://info.lib.uh.edu/sca/digital/cruiser/cruiserh.htm

On this day in history 0122 - Building begins on Hadrian's Wall. Hadrian's Wall established the boundry of the Roman empire in Britain. This wall was ordered built by Emperor Hadrian. The wall was to establish a frontier and control access to Roman Britain. An interesting web page that is easily comprehensible for children is Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site http://museums.ncl.ac.uk/wallnet/ A biographical article on Hadrian can be found at http://www.roman-empire.net/highpoint/hadrian-index.html
