Rough Castle

The Antonine Wall was built by the Roman Army
on the orders of Emperor Antoninus Pius in the
140's AD. The Antonine Wall replaced Hadrian's
Wall as the far northern frontier of the Roman
Empire at this time, and ran for 40 Roman miles
(60km) from Bo'ness in the east, to Old Kilpatrick in the west. The Antonine Wall consisted of a wide deep ditch, with an earthen rampart behind it.
There were forts, fortlets and beacon-platforms
along the Wall and a metalled road known as the
Military Way ran along the whole length of the
frontier. The Antonine Wall was abandoned by the
Romans after only 20 years, but many sections
have remained visible until the present day, even
where the rampart has been flattened, the silted-up
ditch survives under the present ground surface.
