Trimontium was the name given by the Romans to the massive fort they built in the first century AD in the shadow of the three Eildon Hills. The vast array of Roman military equipment excavated at the site astounded the Edwardian archaeologists who excavated there in the 1900s. The Trimontium Museum, which lies on the Square in Melrose, house and displays some of this varied and fascinating treasure which ranges from Roman weapons to severed heads.
The Museum gives some idea of what it was like to live on a Roman fort two thousand years ago.
