The Natural History of the Antonine Wall
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.
