The Hunterian Museum at the University of Glasgow has recently opened a new, permanent exhibition comprising of artefacts taken from excavations from around the area of Scotland's own limes, the Antonine Wall.
Part of the museum's press-release:
This gallery explores the biography of one of the most important monuments of Roman Britain. The richly sculptured distance slabs of the Antonine Wall are unique to the frontiers of the Roman Empire.
Through The Hunterian’s rich collections the gallery investigates four key themes: The building of the Wall – its architecture and impact on the landscape; the role of the Roman army on the frontier - the life and lifestyle of its soldiers; the cultural interaction between Roman and indigenous peoples, and evidence for local resistance; and the abandonment of the Wall and the story of its rediscovery over the last 350 years.
'The Antonine Wall: Rome’s Final Frontier' also reflects the story of over three centuries of collecting and research by the University of Glasgow on the World Heritage Site.
The display is situated in the entrance gallery of the museum.
If any of you happen to go, please do let us know what it's like!
