Where's Hadrian's Wall Gone?

A lot of people around the world and a good many in this country expect to see Hadrian's Wall still standing to its full size of around 15ft high. This expectation is usually linked to images they've seen of the parts of the Great Wall of China which are still standing to its full height and people then assuming that Hadrian's Wall will likewise be so.

Sadly the survival of Hadrian's Wall has been something of recent battle, as although it managed to avoid serious damage during the post Roman and most of the medieval period, it was the later part of the 18th Century which saw is first wholesale destruction.
