The Natural History of the Antonine Wall

Saturday 15 June 2019

Antonine Wall: Croy Hill

View east to Croy Hill from Bar Hill Fort, Antonine Wall.

In 142 AD, the Antonine Wall would have been a busy place. With 7,000 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 and an Archaeologist will begin at Croy Hill and explore some of the military history from the Roman occupation, and also delve into how the Roman occupation affected the landscape.
