How life was on the Roman frontier in Scotland

It was the biggest, most awe-inspiring building project the people of present-day Scotland had ever seen and stretched right across the country, from the Clyde to the Forth.

The Antonine Wall signalled the arrival of the Romans with the frontier, constructed around AD 142, marking the north west limits of their Empire. Built, occupied and abandoned in just 20 years, remnants of the wall that are left behind build up a tantalising picture of everyday life of the invading force who lived side-by-side with local tribes.
