Hidden roads are giving clues to a neglected chapter in the history of Roman Britain almost 2, years ago as these roads helped Rome's legions conquer and control northern England. Within ten years, the Vikings began attacks along the North coast of France. Charlemagne, king of the Franks, set up a series of defenses along the coast to ward off these Viking raids.
