Iron tyre
Add to album

This iron tyre for a large wheel was found at the site of the Roman fort at Inchtuthil in Perthshire. It was used between 82 and 87 AD.

The tyre is somewhat flattened on one side. It has three holes in one half of the circumference.

The Romans hauled materials over short and long distances in wagons and carts to order to set up and provision their network of forts. Often all that is left of the vehicles are metal fittings, bindings and occasionally the tyres.
