The Natural History of the Antonine Wall

Saturday 8 July 2023

Antonine Wall: Croy Hill

In 142 AD the Antonine Wall would have been a busy place.  With 7000 soldiers posted here, the Roman army needed a lot of supplies; not just food and water, but also building materials and firewood. 

They viewed the landscape surrounding the frontier as a resource, and modern research has shown that we can still trace the environmental impact of the Antonine Wall on the landscape.

This guided walk with a Ranger will begin at Croy Hill and explore some of the military history from of the Roman occupation, and also delve into how the Roman occupation affected the landscape.
