At last . . . a day without rush. On Saturday (August 8) we took a train from Waverley Station to Falkirk High Station. Ranald was there within a few minutes after our phonecall from the Mall. He pointed out sites involving two battles and the remains of the Antonine Wall which meanders through Falkirk even though (as Ranald pointed out) the local council had approved the construction of a house over a section of this historic site. The sections of the Antonine Wall built by the Romans are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
After Pat tried to get a good picture of Ranald and Doug as they walked along the stone path in Callendar Park, Ranald turned and pointed towards the mounds and rows of trees in the background, and noted that a ditch of the Antonine Wall was in that direction.
Part 4 of the booklet, Discover The Frontiers of the Roman Empire, The Antonine Wall World Heritage Site in The Falkirk Council area is included after the three photos.
Talk about history. There could be no better guide to a fast tour through the museum and exhibits at Callendar House. We appreciated the models of the battle scenes and replicas of items from the past.
