Mount
Add to album

This bronze mount was found at the site of the Roman fort at Newstead in Roxburghshire. It dates from between 80 and 180 AD.

The mount is in the form of a human head and shoulders. It is in poor condition, much oxidised and encrusted with soil.

Newstead was the largest auxiliary fort in Scotland in the late 1st century AD. In the 2nd century it held a cavalry regiment and legionary detachment. Excavations at Newstead have revealed much about the layout and daily life in Roman forts in Scotland.
