Cleddans Roman Fortlet (Antonine Wall)

Cleddans Roman Fortlet (Antonine Wall)


Duntocher, United Kingdom (GB)
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.

The site of the fortlet is not open to the public and no traces are visible. The site was discovered in 1980 and all though no remains have ever been found, it is the halfway point between the Duntocher and Castlehill Roman forts. This site proves the fact the wall was originally built with fortlets and later upgraded to forts.
