Roman fort under supermarket hides deeper secret
Recent excavations for a new supermarket in Camelon, near Falkirk, revealed a series of Roman forts believed to be a centre of commerce in Scotland from the first century AD. Many of the items dug up from the site have been put on public display in a temporary cabin beside the building site, but one item is causing some confusion amongst archeologists. A petrosphere, or stone ball, believed to date from the neolithic era, was found in what appears to be a kitchen area. Similar items have been found in various locations across Scotland in the past, but this is the first time one has been found in the middle of a Roman site.
