Trimontium

This site dating from the period of Agricola in the 1st Century AD. was known as the place of the three peaks, we know this from the writings of Potolmy.  It was the headquarters of the Roman Army in the North, the roman road coming up from Corebridge.

This site was the centre for a number of networks, and from here the Romans calculated the distances from Trimontium.

The Roman engineers built the fort on a mound that overlooked the River Tweed making it a very important camp.

For visitors to the site today a number of excellent out guides have been erected to act as information points to those who wish to walk in the footsteps of the Romans, but sadly not much can be observed today which lies above the ground.

However, in Melrose the visitor can enjoy viewing a display of what life would have been like within the fort.
