Trimontium Museum

[Trimontium Museum]

Melrose is well known for its 12th century abbey and stunning gardens, but its history goes back a lot further. The area was occupied by the Romans in the 1st and 2nd centuries AD, and a Roman fort called Trimontium was established about a mile away, close to the River Tweed. The Trimontium Museum in Melrose town centre is a real treasure trove, describing the area's Roman heritage along with hundreds of locally-discovered artefacts. Trimontium translates as three hills, referring to the Eildon Hills which rise above the town.
