XXVI.-NOTE ON A FRAGMENT OF A ROMAN LORICA,

OR CUIRASS OF BRONZE SCALE-ARMOUR, FROM THE WALL TURRET ON WALLTOWN CRAG.

BY THE REv. G. ROME HALL, F.S.A.

[Read on the 31st January, 1894. ] Last summer, in the middle of July, when staying at Gilsland, I had the opportunity of again revisiting the important but now nearly obliterated Roman station of Magna (Caervoran), and the line of the Roman W all along the picturesque · Nine Nicks of Thirlwall.

In the Handbook of the Roman Wall (3rd edition, page 185), it will be reinembered that our late friend and venerated vice-president, Dr. Bruce, speaks of the interesting discovery, in the autumn of 1883, of a wall turret laid bare on the westernmost height of these great basaltic crags, not far from Caer voran. No trace of it, however, is now to be found, as it was soon after entirely demolished by the whinstone quarrymen. Dr. Bruce denounces in terms not too strong, we shall probably all admit, an act of vandalism which might easily have been avoided. “As the quarry is an extensive one it was understood,' he writes, that the turret would be spared, and that other portions of the cliff would be submitted to the operations of the miner. Not so, however ; this priceless memorial of our country's early history has been utterly destroyed. The discovery of this turret led to the enquiry as to whether there might not be some others to the east of it. Mr. Clayton sent his chief explorator Tailford to examine the cliff. He found two others. Seeing, however, the fate of this one, it will be well to let them enjoy the protection of the soil which now covers them, until England becomes an educated nation.'

le monthly meeting of our Society in October, 1892, we had e pleasure of listening to our colleague Mr. J. P. Gibson's graphic

Testing lecture on his then recent excavation, under the

of our Society, of one of the turrets in question, and of the w and vallum in its neighbourhood, excellently illustrated as it VOL XVI,

was by a series of photographs. As it is presumed that the two wall turrets, one on the Walltown crag and the other on Mucklebank, the latter being the one excavated, were those which Tailford had found a few years earlier, we may hopefully conclude that the archaeological education of this northern portion at least of our country had considerably advanced in the interval. In passing along the rugged heights, crowned by well-preserved portions of the Roman Wall, as we were glad to see it on that lovely summer morning, we came to the turret a little distance westwards from the Walltown farmhouse. It was here, not on Mucklebank where the Roman centurial stone was discovered in the turret set like an eagle's eyrie on the almost inaccessible crag above • King Arthur's Well,' that the rarely-found fragment of Roman scale-armour, which I now exhibit, was discovered. In the débris thrown out of the Wall turret by the quarrymen, in some impromptu diggings, on to the southern slope, it was only natural for a passing antiquary to search a little, especially as the winter frosts and rains had disintegrated the mass since the partial excavation had been effected in the previous summer. Of course, it was certain that hardly anything large or important could have escaped the vigilance of the self-appointed excavators ;) but by the help of the only implement at hand, a walking-stick, a few small fragments of Roman pottery, 'smother-kiln’ and other kinds (but no trace of Samian), soon appeared to view. Among these indications of ancient habitation and the use of amphorae, mortaria, and different fictile vessels, of which perhaps more and larger traces since taken away would be found in the year preceding, I noticed a tinge of green rust denoting the oxide of bronze. After a little care

ful manipulation three scales or plates of a Roman lorica or cuirass came to light.

As you will perceive, they are fastened together securely by fine but strong bronze wire; and the holes for attachment to the leathern or linen tunic or

lining, two on each scale, the first still (Full size.)

perfect, those on the second and third I have not heard what they found here, if they indeed found anything which they would consider valuable. A careful excavation would probably be well rewarded.
