Antonine Wall – new framework available now!

Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site: The Antonine Wall is the latest thematic framework to be added to the ScARF website. The Antonine Wall was the most densely defined of the Roman frontier systems, as well as the largest turf-built structure in the Roman Empire.

The Wall is extremely important for understanding the construction, operation and development of Roman frontiers, as well as the impact of imperial policy on military strategy. Furthermore, it holds an enormous amount of information about the landscape and vegetation at the time of its construction.

This framework explores the importance and current value of this World Heritage site and creating the research agenda is part of the process of helping to understand, sustain, interpret and promote this significant monument in its global, national and local context.
