Tour Scotland video of The Antonine Guard at the Sunday afternoon picnic at the Perthshire Amber Festival on visit to Dunkeld, Perthshire, Scotland. Legio sexta victrix, Victorious Sixth Legion, was a legion of the Imperial Roman army founded in 41 BC by the general Octavian later known as the emperor Augustus. In 119, Hadrian relocated the legion to northern Britannia, to assist those legions already present in quelling the resistance there. In 122 the legion started work on Hadrian's Wall which would sustain the peace for two decades. Twenty years later, they helped construct the Antonine Wall, but it was largely abandoned by 164.
