Excavations

From time to time the Museum undertakes archaeological work with the help of a group of enthusiastic volunteers. Over the last 20 years this work has discovered many new sites such as the Neolithic roundhouse at Weedingshall, the Roman fort at Falkirk, Roman bathhouse at Carriden, Roman fortlet at Laurieston, the 9th century timber hall at Callendar Park and 10th century Celtic cross at Carriden. On the Antonine Wall it has shown that defensive pits, the Roman equivalent of a minefield, ran the whole length of the Wall.

Excavations at known sites, such as Manuel Nunnery, Torwood Castle and the Carron Canal has brought to light important new material.
