Trimontium Trust2018-05-13T16:42:25+00:00

The Trimontium Trust was born almost thirty years ago from the embers of a public enquiry into a threat posed to the site of the fort by the proposed Melrose Bypass.

The enquiry, instigated by Donald Gordon, was successful in moving the course of the road and also re-awakening interest in this fascinating site and its central place within the network of Roman installations constructed during their occupation of Scotland.

The Trust is an active, wholly volunteer led organisation which seeks to tell the story of Roman Scotland and especially explore the mysteries of the fort, named Trimontium by the Romans after the adjacent three Eildon Hills.

The Trust has a major commitment to curating and leading guided walks to the site and also delivering an active education programme to schools and the wider public centred on its museum in Melrose.

We are always looking for new recruits! Please contact the Hon. Sec. for further details secretary_trimontium@yahoo.com

We would not exist if James Curle had not had the vision to excavate the site of Trimontium.  You can read his book, A Roman Frontier Post and Its People here http://www.curlesnewstead.org.uk/xi.htm
