Scope and Content Antonine Wall at Watling Lodge, Falkirk, Stirling The Antonine Wall was constructed by Roman soldiers in AD 142 or 143 to form a barrier across the narrowest part of Britain between the Rivers Forth and Clyde. This view shows one of the best remaining sections of the ditch in front of the Antonine Wall. The V-shaped section 12 metres across by 4.5 metres deep is clearly visible. Beyond the ditch the wall itself would have stood to a height of around 3 metres. Sections of the stone foundations were found during excavations. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
