Free Roman conference in Bo’ness

History fans are being invited to a mini-conference about the Roman Antonine Wall.

The event takes place in the Hippodrome Cinema in Bo’ness this Sunday, Sept 18, from 10 a.m. A spokesman for the organisers said: “This free event is for anyone in the community interested in the Antonine Wall and Roman heritage in the area.”

Key speakers will include Professor David Breeze, previously of Historic Scotland, and Dr Fraser Hunter of National Museums Scotland.

There will also be presentations on new interpretation along the Antonine Wall, and the John Muir Way – which runs past many of the local Roman sites.

Organisers have also secured a speaker from Odenwald in Germany – Falkirk district’s twinned area – to speak about the Romans in her country.
