The Antonine Wall

Frontier of the Roman Empire.
The Antonine Wall was placed on the World Heritage List in 2008 by UNESCO for its value to all humanity.
The wall was 37 miles long,  the best preserved part is in the small village of Bonnybridge (just outside Falkirk) where you can roam in Seabegs Wood and find the earthworks of the ramparts and ditches of Roughcastle Fort which was the smallest fort along the wall. Although the area is now grassed over it still gives good impressions on the layout from over 2000 yrs ago.

If you have been there or plan on going please share photos of your experience here.

    I am planning to go with my family this February holidays. There is a really good website with an interactive map and lots of suggestions of activities for kids. @antoninewall.org

    Also there is an app that you can download which looks great too with which is fully interactive and gives you 360° virtual reconstructions.

    Cant wait to visit this Heritage site!

    I am very interested in taking one of the 'Real Roman'  guided history tours which run from the Falkirk wheel to Roughcastle Fort.  These look a lot of fun, led by a costumed guide with a degree in ancient history!  More details for anyone interested are available on their website at www.realromantours.co.uk.

    The guys from Real Roman Tours are fantastic and very informative...Quintus Valerius Maximus is the tour guide along with his sidekick Rufus they are in full Roman soldier armour the tour takes around 2 hours from The Falkirk Wheel to Roughcastle. CB33 I would gladly do the tour with you....
