    Roman camp found in Scotland



    See:
    https://www.archaeology.org/news/767...land-army-camp

    I forget they got that far.

    "AYRSHIRE, SCOTLAND—According to a report in The Herald, evidence of a Roman army marching camp has been found at a construction site in southwest Scotland. Archaeologist Iraia Arabaolaza said the camp may date to the first century A.D., and the victory of Agricola, the Roman governor of Britain, over an army of Caledonians in the Battle of Mons Grampius. It had been previously thought that the Romans only traveled a route further to the east for the invasion. This camp, Arabaolaza explained, would have been strategically located just a day’s march from other Roman camps in the region. Evenly distributed fire pits at the site are thought to have been used for baking bread. “The location of the oven was recognized by the scorching of the subsoil base, stone slabs, and burnt clay fragments, some with wood imprints and with dome molding,” Arabaolaza said. Much of the camp has been destroyed by construction and landscaping projects over the years, she added. To read more about the Roman military in northern Britain, go to "The Wall at the End of the Empire.""

    In Ayreshire is this statue of Brigantia holding a world globe and with Gorgon/ Medusa around her neck , like Minerva and Athena. The same is also seen at Bath England. The Latin text says she is "architect for government orders" so the world must have been Rome . ( Until the Picts politely asked the Romans to go away).

    Isn't that statue the one from Birrens in Dumfries and Galloway?

    Oh aye , Dumfriesshire next to Ayrshire of the article.
    The distance between Dumfries and Ayr is 48 miles.

    Trains Dumfries to Ayr - Train Timetables & Cheap Tickets -

    or roughly 36.83654934 km from Ayrshire border depending on snowfall.

    I am very fond of the history of the ancient world and I can say that this is not the first ancient Roman camp found in Europe.
