Antonine Wall Awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status

Scotland's Antonine Wall, once the most northerly frontier of the Roman Empire, has been awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO, an accolade already shared by iconic landmarks such as Stonehenge and the Great Wall of China.

The BBC has the story at two sites: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/tayside_and_central/7494680.stm and http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/tayside_and_central/7487191.stm
