From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The villa was constructed at Tibur (modern-day Tivoli) as a retreat from Rome for Roman Emperor Hadrian in the early 2nd century. Hadrian was said to dislike the palace on the Palatine Hill in Rome, leading to the construction of the retreat. During the later years of his reign, he actually governed the empire from the villa. A large court therefore lived there permanently. A postal service connected them to Rome. After Hadrian, the villa was used by his various successors. During the decline of the Roman Empire the villa fell into disuse and was partially ruined. In the 16th century Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este had much of the marble and statues in Hadrian's villa removed to decorate his own Villa d'Este located nearby.

The waters of northwest Scotland’s Hebrides Range have hosted an At Sea Demonstration to test allied nation’s capability to provide air and missile defence. Members of the Maritime Theatre Missile Defence (MTMD) Forum used Exercise Joint Warrior to carry out a number of operationally realistic test serials prior to the shooting down of a ballistic missile. At Sea Demonstration 15 (ASD15) was the culmination of years of planning and its main event, one of over 30, saw the simultaneous tracking and engagement of an ultra high altitude missile as well as two sea skimming cruise missiles.

The villa was created at Tibur (modern-day Tivoli) as a retreat from Rome for Roman Emperor Hadrian in the early C2nd. During the later years of Hadrians reign, he actually governed the empire from the villa, with a large court and even a postal service connecting him with Rome.
