Roman "Boots on the Ground" in Scotland

GUARD Archaeology Limited:
Archaeological investigations undertaken a few miles to the north of Dumfries by GUARD Archaeology, which have just been published, have revealed new insight into the Roman Army's occupation of southern Scotland during the second century AD.
These are the remains of a calceaus shoe - which whilst laced had a closed toe, showing that thank goodness socks with sandals were not always worn by Englishmen.

The excavation been published in the Transactions of the Dumfriesshire and Galloway Natural History and Antiquarian Society.

I do not moderate comments, but I remove spam, overt self-promotion ("read [link] my much better post on this") and what I consider hate speech (racism, homophobia etc).
