Active/ Passive Voice Exercise 

In the year 122 AD, the Roman Emperor Hadrian VISITED his provinces in Britain. On his visit, the Roman soldiers TOLD him that Pictish tribes from Britain’s north HAD ATTACKED them. So Hadrian GAVE the order to build a protective wall across one of the narrowest parts of the country. After 6 years of hard work, the Wall WAS FINISHED in 128. It WAS 117 kilometers long and about 4 meters high. The Wall WAS GUARDED by 15,000 Roman soldiers. Every 8 kilometers there WAS a large fort in which up to 1,000 soldiers FOUND shelter. The soldiers WATCHED over the frontier to the north and CHECKED the people who WANTED to enter or leave Roman Britain. In order to pass through the Wall, people HAD TO GO to one of the small forts that SERVED as gateways. Those forts WERE CALLED mile castles because the distance from one fort to another WAS one Roman mile (about 1,500 meters). Between the mile castles there WERE two turrets from which the soldiers GUARDED the Wall. If the Wall WAS ATTACKED by enemies, the soldiers at the turrets RAN to the nearest mile castle for help or LIT a fire that COULD BE SEEN by the soldiers in the mile castle. In 383 Hadrian’s Wall WAS ABANDONED. Today, Hadrian’s Wall IS the most popular tourist attraction in northern England. In 1987, it BECAME a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
