Introduction: A hundred years of studying a Roman frontier post

2012

Abstract

James Curle's excavation of the Roman frontier fort of Newstead, ancient Trimontium, near Melrose in the Scottish Borders, was a landmark in Roman frontier studies culminating with his book, published in 1911. This volume was conceived as a celebration, looking back to Curle and his work, and looking forward to how the picture is changing. With contributions from a range of experts, it is constructed around five main themes: - early work on the site, culminating with Curle - the fort complex - the finds - the setting, especially links to the local population - the afterlife of the excavations, in terms of their continuing impact.
