Masonry at Castlecary and Gate wall foundations at Bernuli Camp

Masonry at Castlecary and Gate wall foundations at Bernuli Camp

The specimen of masonry at Castlecary (bottom) is representative of the Antonine wall. This was of the same construction (Roman blocks built round a rubble core) as the Hadrian line of defense. Recent excavations have revealed interesting foundations of gate walls at Bernuli camp (top) These Scottish forts were for the most part smaller than those of the English walls. They range from 1 to 4½ acres in extent, with the exception of Mumrills, by Falkirk, which is larger. There were 19 of them in the 37 miles of line, at intervals of two miles.
