Salvage Record (May 1990)

NS97NW 46.02 9043 7952

As a result of roadworks an 11m section of the Antonine Ditch was completely excavated. The V-shaped ditch had sides 43 degrees with a narrow slot in the base. It was 8.2m wide, V-shaped and attained a depth of 4.3m. Some 10.7m to the S lay the remanants of the stone base of the Wall. The berm contained two gullies of unknown date or function and four shallow pits which may have been truncated remains of defensive pits. To the S of the Wall base three further pits were irregularly dug.

The levelled remains of the upcast mound were also examined. It was c.11m wide and survived to a height of 0.7m. It seems probable that a gravel layer on top of the mound represented the medieval highway from Linlithgow to Falkirk. Below the mound was a pre-Roman cultivation soil.
