History Lovers Reconstruct a Roman Empire Display Entirely Out of LEGOs

A group of British LEGO fans known as Brick to the Past have reconstructed history using the iconic toy blocks. They recently finished Hadrian's famous wall at Rome's northern frontier, creating a sprawling scene that's incredibly well informed–several members of the team researched it by completing a course at Newcastle University, in addition to taking a field trip to the actual site.

The massive display has two sides–there's a Roman side and a Celtic side. The Roman section sits behind the wall with a temple, bathhouse, forts, and a small town. The Celtic area features an Iron Age village, standing stones, and farm houses. Each part includes a staggering amount of detail and is complete with villagers, livestock, statues, and ornate facades on the buildings.

Brick to the Past's creation will be on display at Brick 2015 in London for 3 days, starting on December 11, 2015.
