The Rediscovering the Antonine Wall Project began in 2016 /17 with a series of community consultation events, around 15 across all the council areas. We strongly believed that all elements of the project should be co-designed and co-curated with the local communities so were open to all ideas that they might bring forward. This work led to a series of capital and community projects being developed and submitted for funding consideration to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, our main funder, in 2018.
There are two important capital strands – playparks and distance slabs. Then we have a series of 30 co-designed community projects, 6 in each of the local authority areas. A volunteer programme, the 21st century legion is designed to offer skills training and engagement opportunities, while we also intend to create a film and a range of educational and outreach products.
The capital projects are running in Years 1 and 2, with the community projects spread across all three years
