Edin's Hall fort, broch and settlement, Berwickshire (Scottish Borders): recent fieldwork and new perceptions
Forts (Roman Auxiliary), Brochs, settlement
Berwickshire; Scottish Borders; Scotland; UK
A survey and excavations were undertaken in 1996 at Edin's Hall fort, broch and settlement — a monument in the care of Historic Scotland — in response to evidence of rabbit damage to the earthworks. The work has shown that the evolution of the site is considerably more complex than had been recognized hitherto. The broch may have been constructed during the lifetime of the settlement. The status and wealth of the site are discussed, and considered in relation to aspects of Roman/native interaction. The project was wholly funded by Historic Scotland.
