Archaeology Notes

NT53SE 20.15 5707 3427

NT 5707 3427 A pointed fragment of iron found on the farm road along the S side of the Roman fort of Trimontium is identified as the point of an iron fore-shaft pilum. The nature and location of the find lends support to the conclusion that the 1st-century occupation of the site ended with hostile action. The find is currently held in the Trimontium Museum, Melrose.

W Lonie 1996.
