The Military Way
The Military Way
This was the route of the access road for soldiers defending the Antonine Wall. Built in the early 140s AD, the Antonine Wall was Rome's north west frontier, running 60Km from Bo'ness on the Forth in the east to Old Kilpatrick on the Clyde in the west. It was only defended for about 20 years before the Romans reckoned it was more trouble than it was worth!
