The Antonine Wall was built by the Romans across what is now known as the Central Belt of modern-day Scotland. The wall was 63 kilometres (39 miles), was about 3 metres (10 feet) high and 5 metres (16 feet) wide. Construction began in AD 142 and took 12 years to complete.
Located along the wall in Bearsden was a Roman fort that also had its own bathhouse. The majority of the fort now lies buried beneath modern-day roads and buildings. However, located in the middle of a modern housing development are the remains of the bathhouse that once served the fort. The stone foundations are an example of the best-preserved stone structures along the entire wall today.
