Sculptured Roman legionary tablet discovered at Carriden, Linlithgowshire (published in Archaeologia Scotica Volume 5)

The project to scan the entire run of the Proceedings, Archaeologia Scotica and the Society's out-of-print monographs and books, was generously funded by Historic Scotland, the ARCHway Project and the Russell Trust and could not have been completed without the active and enthusiastic involvement of the Archaeology Data Service.
