      Water plant work digs up evidence of Roman fort
      The Edinburgh Evening News, 04 January 2008

      A 2000-YEAR-OLD Roman fort has been uncovered on the site of a new £60
      million treatment plant for the Capital's drinking water. The remains of
      the camp were discovered during preparations for the Glencorse works on
      the edge of the Pentland Hills Regional Park. It is hoped the find will
      give archaeologists further clues about how the Romans organised their
      occupation of the Lothians in the first century AD. The site is thought
      to be a Roman marching camp and is part of a network of other bases,
      watchtowers and camps across lowland Scotland. Historians had suspected
      there were Roman remains at Glencorse from studying aerial photographs,
      but this is the first actual evidence to be found.
