Chronicling an invaluable period during Scotland's varied and violent past, this history of the Antonine Wall examines the enigmatic life of Emperor Antoninus Pius as well as the motives for both the construction and abandonment of the barricade. Attributing its construction to the Roman army, this comprehensive study identifies the Antonine Wall as evidence of the Roman presence in Scotland and fully documents its historical background. With complete archaeological and architectural details, this unique exploration of the northern outpost of the Roman Empire is a thoroughly informative and fascinating record of a nation.
