Fragments of a glass bottle

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

Powerful local chieftains controlled contact with the Romans, keeping most of the Roman objects and passing some onto their followers. The Roman objects provided valuable raw materials, and were often reused for other purposes.
