DALSWINTON Dumfriesshire, Scotland.

Three successive Roman forts guarded the crossing of the river Nith 9 km N of Dumfries. One, which has revealed two periods of occupation, lies on the flood plain and is at least 2.6 ha in extent; the other pair (3.5 and 4.5 ha), which are probably later in date, occupy the high ground immediately to the N and are superimposed. All three forts are believed to be of Flavian date.


Trans. Dumfriesshire and Galloway Nat. Hist. and Ant. Soc. 3d ser. 34, 9-21; 35, 9-13; JRS 63 (1973) 217.
