Romano-British Settlement (Alwinton)

These are the remains of a Romano-British homestead on the south-east slopes of moorland overlooking the valley of the Kidlandlee Burn. The remains of a rectangular enclosure, bounded by earth and stone banks, can be seen. Inside can be seen a large raised hut circle and several smaller hut circles. Another four hut circles stand outside the enclosure. This site is typical of the local type of minor Romano-British settlement in the area.
