Mortaria shards,Glenlochar

Mortaria were bowls with a rough surface used for grinding cereals and other food.  Due to this rough surface, these are known as fragments of coarse-ware. These three fragments of coarse-ware are large, with a white matrix. Two of the sections are rim sections which show horizontal banding on the exteriors.     Glenlochar Fort   Glenlochar near Castle Douglas was central to the Roman army's operations in Galloway. A series of temporary camps and a fort guarded a crossing over the Dee and controlled the routes north along the Glenkens and west to Loch Ryan and the North Channel. Limited excavations have produced a range of finds typical of small forts in northern Britain.
