Lady Cameron – Patron of The Trimontium Trust

The trust are pleased to have the support of Lady Cameron, granddaughter of James Curle who undertook the archaeological dig at Trimontium from 1904-1908 and wrote the highly regarded publication Newstead – a Frontier Post and its People.

In her own words: ” I am a Borderer born and bred. As a granddaughter of James Curle I could not escape the Romans. Growing up in Melrose my generation were familiar with Trimontium or the Roman fort as we knew it. We heard all the stories about the digs there from my mother and her sisters. We looked for finds in molehills, Roman nails in fence posts and climbed The Eildons to search for Iron Age houses. Visits to museums were a treat then and still remain so for me. The roots of my family are in Melrose and the history of the town and the surrounding area seem to me now more important than ever.”
