Camelon Fort

This fort has largely disappeared and little is known. Excavations of the fort annex have found pottery dated to the Flavian( Agricola) period in 80 AD and Antonine in 142 AD. Possible ballista bolts have also been found. The fort and civilian houses are reputed to have once covered quite a large area. The fort was north of the Antonine wall and on the route to the Stirling area and Gask Ridge.

Finds from the site have been limited but a Samian Ware Platter, Camelon (Vimeo link) from Lezoux in central France has been found at the site. The museum de la ceremique in Lezoux has some information.
