Plans Proposed to Make Antonine Wall World Heritage Site

Scotland's Antonine Wall, the most northernly reach of the Roman Empire in Britain, is the subject of a campaign to gain World Heritage status for the site.

Much of the wall has been damaged by 2,000 years of weather, urbanization and agriculture, but historians believe it can be saved if it is declared a heritage site. If the campaign is successful, the wall will become part of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site, which is endeavoring to save Roman sites throughout Europe.
