Abstract:
The paper describes and discusses the pragmatic responses, in the design of the ditch, to the defensive potential of the topography. The asymmetrical `one-sided ditch' is identified, usually associated with a narrow counterscarp bank which should be distinguished from the glacis, her and on the Antonine Wall. The extension of the outer scarp of the counterscarp bank, or of that of the berm (or a combination of the two) was used to make the transition between the ditch and the natural defences of the crags. In some areas only the topsoil was scraped up. Where no ditch was provided the Wall itself may have been built higher.
