Welcome to Rome's Northernmost Frontier!


In AD 138 Antoninus Pius became Emperor of Rome and needed a swift military victory to secure his position.  He ordered Hadrian's Wall to be abandoned and sent his Legions back into Scotland where they established a new frontier between Bo’ness on the Firth of Forth and Old Kilpatrick on the Clyde. For twenty years this line, which is now known as the Antonine Wall, served as Rome’s northernmost frontier.
