Walking the Antonine Wall charts a voyage on foot along one of Scotland’s most fascinating ancient monuments – a 38 mile rampart constructed in the second century AD by the Romans to mark what would briefly become the northernmost frontier of their vast empire. It is a personal account of Dr Alan Montgomery’s encounters with the enigmatic remains of this Roman frontier which have inspired myths and legends and intrigued and baffled generations of chroniclers, antiquarians and archaeologists. Leading through wild open spaces and along city streets, past curiosities man-made and natural, ancient and modern, it records a journey across central Scotland and through 2000 years of Scottish history.
