The Big Roman Week

Scotland's biggest Roman festival returns in September 2018

Family Fun at Big Roman Week Festival this September

The Big Roman Week will deliver heritage events right across the Falkirk Council area – at the eastern end of the Roman Antonine Wall – and beyond, extending along the Wall to Glasgow.

Walks, talks, films and family events are planned to encourage people to find out more about their Roman roots.

The fun kicks off on Saturday, September 15, and runs until Saturday, September 29. Many events, although not all, will be free of charge.

The programme will include:

A Big Roman Day at Kinneil House, Bo’ness, on September 15 – organised by the Friends of Kinneil (the House will also be opened courtesy of Historic Environment Scotland);

Talk on the latest archaeological research in Bo’ness Library;

Events & displays at libraries and museums across the Falkirk Council area;

And walks to Roman sites along the Antonine Wall – at Kinneil (Bo’ness);

and from Twechar to Kirkintilloch – continuing the trip from the east end of the Wall to the west end.
