Big Roman Week 2016
Eighth Big Roman Week starts on 17 September 2016
The 2016 Big Roman Week kicks off on Saturday 17 September and runs until Sunday 25 September.
Roman Week coincides with the birthday of Emperor Antoninus Pius who was born 19 September 86 AD.
Emperor Antoninus Pius was responsible for the construction of the Antonine Wall. It runs from Bo’ness in the east to Old Kilpatrick in the west.
The turf-based Antonine Wall was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2008.
This year there will be events across the Falkirk area in Bonnybridge, Polmont, Larbert, Falkirk, Grangemouth and Bo’ness.
As in previous years during Big Roman Week, an Italian Night Meal has been organised in the Corbie Inn.
There is walks, talks, family events, film shows, arts and library activities! All have been lined up to help local people explore their Roman roots and get a better understanding of local history.
ITALIAN NIGHT - THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 AT 7PM.
You can enjoy a three-course Italian meal for just £17.50 a head.
Followed the meal there will be talk by Dr Lyn Wilson of the Scottish Ten project.
Tickets are available from the Corbie Inn, just ask at the bar. But, don't hang about as tickets are limited and last time it was a sell-out!
There is a full list of events on the Big Roman Week website here.
Many events are free of charge, but check listings for full information.
