This is an excellent new website created to promote the Antonie Wall as part of the World Heritage Site, Frontiers of the Roman Empire (covering the Antonine Wall, Hadrian’s Wall and the German Limes).

The Antonine Wall: Frontiers of the Roman Empire is funded by Historic Scotland and the five local authorities that the wall runs through, which includes North Lanarkshire. It’s full of pictures, diagrams, an interactive map, and of course, loads of information about the building and maintenance of the wall, and evidence of what life must have been like for those who lived in and around it.

It’s an excellent educational site, but I particularly like the visiting guide which provides details of how to access each location.  Very useful.

Really wish there was something similar for all of the other archaeological sites in Scotland, but it’s a start 🙂
