DESCRIPTION:

Dr David Breeze explains how the Antonine Wall became a World Heritage Site.

The Antonine Wall was the Roman frontier in Scotland from AD 142 for about 20 years. In 2008 it was inscribed as a World Heritage Site (WHS), joining Hadrian’s Wall and the German frontier in the ‘Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site’.

This lecture will explore the process of making a monument a WHS and consider the advantages and disadvantages of being a WHS. In particular, it will explore what cannot be included in a WHS and why. The role of international co-operation is also considered.

David Breeze was formerly Chief Inspector of Ancient Monuments for Scotland. He holds honorary professorships at four universities, and has served as chairman of the International Congress of Roman Frontier Studies as well as president of several archaeological societies in the UK. He has excavated on both Hadrian’s Wall and the Antonine Wall and written about both
