Edge of Empire - Scotland's Roman Frontier

Edge of Empire - Scotland's Roman Frontier

The Antonine Wall is a stone and turf fortification
 built by the Romans

across the central belt of Scotland
 to fend off Northern Scots tribesmen.

The Wall was the North-West frontier of the Roman Empire
and runs from Old Kilpatrick on the Forth & Clyde Canal
to 
Bo'ness on the Firth of Forth.
Sections of the wall can be seen in Bearsden,
 Kirkintilloch, Twechar, Croy,
Bonnybridge, Falkirk
, Polmont and Bo'ness.






The Antonine Wall

The Antonine Wall

As the most advanced frontier construction of its time,
and as definitive evidence of the Romans' time in Scotland,
the Antonine Wall is an invaluable and fascinating part
 of this country's varied and violent history.
 For a generation, from about 140 to 160 AD,
the Antonine Wall was the NW frontier of the Roman Empire.
Constructed by the Roman army,
 it ran from modern Bo'ness on the Forth
 to Old Kilpatrick on the Clyde
 and consisted of a turf rampart fronted by a wide and deep ditch.
At regular intervals were forts connected by a road,
while outside the fort gates clustered civil settlements.
 Antoninus Pius, whom the wall was named after,
reigned longer than any other emperor
with the exception of its founder Augustus.
 Yet relatively little is known about him.
 In this meticulously researched book,
David Breeze examines this enigmatic life
 and the reasons for the construction and abandonment of his Wall.
