Trimontium Roman fort has a unique place in the history of Iron Age Scotland

The Trimontium Museum is in the heart of Melrose in the Scottish Borders. We tell the story of Trimontium, the largest Roman fort and settlement north of Hadrian’s Wall, and the interaction between the invading Romans and the native Iron Age tribes they encountered. Visit our museum to find out more.
