Archaeology Notes

NS83NW 27 c. 81 39.

An Armorican silver coin from Lesmahagow (NS 81 39), if it is indeed an ancient rather than a modern loss, is indicative of trade contracts far beyond the boundaries of the county, perhaps in the middle of the 1st century BC. (A L F Rivet ed. 1962.)

RCAHMS 1978.
