Bronze stud

Barburgh Mill Fort
Small decorative stud, probably from a military belt or horse harness. This fragment of a metal stud has a circular disc with a peg on the reverse. The front has a circle with red colour in the centre, and a radial line creates eight segments around the border, alternating light blue enamel with empty segments.   Barburgh Mill Fortlet The fortlet at Barburgh mill was excavated in the 1970s in advance of its destruction by gravel quarrying. Although on the Dumfriesshire side of the Nith it is typical of the fortlets found in Galloway.
