Archaeology Notes

NT17NW 178 122 777 to 140 775

Alleged course of Roman Road (Cramond to Antonine Wall).

W Maitland 1757

NT 1275 7763 (centre) An archaeological evaluation was undertaken to confirm the mid-18th-century report of a Roman road located across the N end of the Ferrymuir. Five trenches were excavated by machine across the expected alignment but no trace of the road was discovered. It is suggested that the road may lie along the S edge of the Ferrymuir, along the line followed by a post-medieval coastal road which linked Cramond with Blackness, located at the E end of the Antonine Wall.
