Fort search hopes to change perception of Romans in Scotland

"People are always surprised when I tell them about the Roman occupation of the area - they think the Romans never got any further than the Antonine Wall or even Hadrian's Wall which simply isn't true," said Dr Birgitta Hoffmann who leads an effort to discover a "lost" Roman fort in Scotland.

The archaeologists from the University of Liverpool, part of the Roman Gask Project, are using a variety of non-invasive techniques to search for the fort which they believe is buried somewhere in the Angus and Aberdeenshire. "The truth is, we don't know how far north they got, but we're hoping that the work of The Roman Gask Project will change that this yea," Hoffmann said.
