is a village in England
Whiteside lies near the course of Hadrian's Wall
, one of the most significant Roman monuments in Britain
. The Wall was constructed in 122 AD
. The extent of Hadrian's Wall is 117 kilometres, spanning the width of Britain; the wall incorporated Agricola's Ditch
and was constructed chiefly of stone in the eastern reaches such as at Whiteside. The wall was designed primarily to prevent raids by small Pictish
bands or unwanted immigration
from the north, not as a fighting line for a major invasion.
