Water plant work digs up evidence of Roman fort

A 2000-YEAR-OLD Roman fort has been uncovered on the site of a new £60 million treatment plant for the Capital’s drinking water.

The remains of the camp were discovered during preparations for the Glencorse works on the edge of the Pentland Hills Regional Park.

It is hoped the find will give archaeologists further clues about how the Romans organised their occupation of the Lothians in the first century AD. for more click here
