Abstract:
The watching brief of a 90 m section of water pipe trench excavated along the road leading through Carzield Roman Fort was carried out by GUARD Archaeology Limited on behalf of Scottish Water. A series of archaeological features were uncovered during the work, which appear to correlate with the projected layout of Carzield Roman Fort as witnessed during previous investigations and are therefore potentially Roman in date. These features included the remains of four separate areas of cobbled surface, three of which coincide with the position of a projected barrack block on the south-west edge of what would have been the main Roman road through the fort. The most north-westerly of the surfaces lay within what would have been the central area of the fort and appeared to be more refined in its construction. Below the surfaces there were two ditch features extending north-west and south-east, and between the surfaces there were three cut features and a spread. A number of finds have been recovered for further analysis, these include numerous metal fragments, two possible pieces of tile, one large cast metal object and several pieces of burnt clay.
