Fragments of a glass bottle

These two fragments from the handle of a glass bottle were found at Torwoodlee in Selkirkshire. They are from a Roman object which found its way to a native site sometime between 80 and 200 AD.

Portions of vessels of bluish-green glass, from Torwoodlee, Selkirkshire

Although the Roman occupation in Scotland was strictly military, it did result in a number of fine objects being imported. These spread by various means to the population around the camps, where they were used as status symbols in the local society.
