Roman dig set to begin at Fairmilehead

Have your say

ARCHAEOLOGISTS searching for an ancient Roman camp in Edinburgh residents’ back gardens have unveiled detailed plans for this weekend’s dig.

As well as hunting for initial signs of a temporary marching settlement, experts from Archaeology Scotland will teach homeowners in Buckstone and Fairmilehead how to dig test pits in their gardens and provide information on kite aerial photography and finds washing.

All pits will be refilled and private gardens reinstated.
