NS 730 766 An assessment and survey was undertaken during January–February 2009 to provide information that will inform both the management and interpretation of a well preserved section of the Antonine Wall and a related fort, as well as assessing evidence for the past human use of the landscape. The project noted a series of previously unrecorded sites relating to abandoned rural settlement and more recent mining and quarrying. A more detailed condition survey, including a detailed topographic survey of the Antonine Wall, mapped all visible features relating to the Roman Frontier site and placed it in its landscape setting. To aid the future management of the site areas of bracken, gorse and trees were also surveyed, as were areas of erosion

(primarily the outcome of motorbike and horse use).
