Antonine Wall, Castlecary Roman Fort
An earhwork marks the site of a Roman fort on the line of the Antonine Wall. The earthwork is located just south of the B816, east of its junction with the A80. Across the A80/M80, in the direction of the village, is the remains of a Roman camp.
The fort was probably built about 80AD, by troops under Gnaeus Julius Agricola. It was destroyed sometime in the 2nd century.
