Tile (Piece)

This piece of a tile was found at the site of the Roman fort at Mumrills in Stirlingshire. It is from a box flue tile, used in buildings to allow hot air to circulate within them. It was probably made locally for or by the army between 142 and 165 AD.

The tile has grooved lines, made to help the plaster grip the tile when attached to the walls.

The Roman army obtained supplies from three zones: locally (either by the army or natives), within the Roman province of Britannia, or further afield in the Roman empire.
