The Antonine Wall was built by the Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius AD 142-143.
It ran for 37 miles from Bridgeness on the Forth to Old Kilpatrick on the Clyde and consisted of a ditch with a turf rampart behind it.
The material from the ditch was thrown on to the north side to form a mound. Forts, fortlets, and beacon platforms were placed along the wall.
The Fort of Rough Castle lies 300 yards to the east.
