About the Book

The Antonine Wall, constructed between the Forth and the Clyde in AD 142, was held by the Roman Army for about 20 years as the northern frontier of the province of Britannia. A continuous barrier of turd on a stone foundation, it ran for 60 kilometres, with a regular series of forts along it. The Antonine Wall was made a World Heritage Site in 2008.

This handbook outlines the historical and geographical background and provides a detailed guide to the remains on the ground. It is lavishly illustrated in colour.
