Recent finds from Strageath Roman fort

2006

Abstract

Recent finds from the Roman fort complex at Strageath are described, including cavalry harness fittings, a sword hilt guard of Piggott’s Group IV, and an unusual enamelled pin. Selected older finds are reviewed, with consideration of the influence of indigenous traditions on the material culture of the garrisons, the manufacturing activities taking place at the site, and the interpretation of a hoard of iron and lead objects. The lead ingot found in earlier excavations is re-interpreted as a product of southern Scotland, suggesting early Roman exploitation of the Leadhills/Wanlockhead sources.
