Archaeology Notes

NO21NW 35 248 177.

Though Small (A Small 1823) saw signs of fortification on Mare's Craig, which he puts down as a Roman outpost, there was no sign on the Craig of any artficial work; what looked like walling was natural rock (R R B Watson 1929). The whole area had been quarried away by 1952.

R R B Watson 1929; A Small 1823; Information from MS of D Baird, 29 November 1952.

No further information.

Visited by OS (R D) 20 May 1970.
