Mount
Add to album

This brass mount with an iron tang was found during excavations at the site of the Roman fort at Newstead in Roxburghshire. It was used between 80 and 100 AD for an unknown purpose.

The plain, semicircular mount attached to something else by means of the iron tang. A line has been scored parallel to the edge at the base of the object.

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.
