As summer approaches, a new website has been launched to help visitors get the most out of the Antonine Wall.

Featuring an interactive map, downloadable walking and cycling guides, and in-depth information on the archaeology and history of the wall, the new site will give visitors all the information they need to explore the wonders of the most northerly section of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site.

It provides information on both sites and museums, and key things to see and do for families and tourists planning a day out along the Wall.

In addition to visitor information, the website contains specially developed educational and research resources for all ages, including a database of archaeological artefacts discovered along the wall.

The website is multilingual, available in English, German and Gaelic, and offers a platform to showcase the work delivered by Scottish and international partners.

It was developed and funded collaboratively by the six Partners (East Dunbartonshire, Falkirk, Glasgow City, Historic Scotland, North Lanarkshire, and West Dunbartonshire) who manage the Antonine Wall.

The Antonine Wall stretches 37 miles (60km) across the Scottish Central Belt. In its heyday around 7,000 soldiers were stationed along it, from countries as far away as modern day Syria, Spain and Algeria.
