Roman stone carving of a phallus, in the Vindolanda Museum, Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland, England. The Roman army at Vindolanda included many skilled stonemasons amongst its troops, who had ample work given the regular demolition and rebuilding of the fort. They constructed buildings from locally quarried stone, including the headquarters or principia and commanding officer’s house or praetorian. Hadrian's Wall was built 73 miles across Britannia, now England, 122-128 AD, under the reign of Emperor Hadrian, ruled 117-138, to mark the Northern extent of the Roman Empire and guard against barbarian attacks from the Picts to the North. The Vindolanda Museum is run by the Vindolanda Charitable Trust and forms part of the Hadrian's Wall UNESCO World Heritage Site. Picture by Manuel Cohen
