Further Discoveries on the Line of the Antonine Wall
Pits, Fort, Wall, Defences
An account of further work included tracing the line of the wall from Inveravon to Bridgeness and more detail on the construction of the vallum. One of the defensive pits or lilia was excavated at Rough Castle Fort. Excavation at Croy Hill Fort demonstrated that the defences had seemingly been constructed on a system entirely different from any of those known to have been employed elsewhere on the line of the Wall. Work at Kirkintiloch 'Fort' revealed definite evidence of Roman occupation lending weight to the antiquarian belief that it was in fact a fort.
