Happy birthday, Emperor Antoninus
11 September 2012
The Helix is taking part in a week of events
celebrating Falkirk's rich Roman heritage.
Big Roman Week runs from 15-23
The annual festival marks the birthday of Emperor
Antoninus Pius (born 19 September 86AD) who built his
Roman frontier, The Antonine Wall, across Falkirk
A number of events have been organised to help
people explore and enjoy their local history.
A full calendar of Helix-organised activities can be found in
our Events section. They're listed in date
order and include talks on the Roman Fort at
Mumrills by local historian Geoff Bailey.
