Galloway Picts Project report

Piece of (north) African Red Slipware circa 550 AD from Trusty's Hill.

This important find of  high status pottery imported from Carthage/ north Africa shows that Trusty's Hill near Gatehouse of Fleet, Dumfries and Galloway was an important/ prestige site in the sixth century. For more on the Trusty's Hill dig, see the Galloway Picts Project

I visited the site today (Friday 25 May 2012) where my son Alistair junior has been working as a volunteer digger/ scraper in ferocious heat.
