Trusty's Hill fort 'E' ware

Piece of 'E' ware pottery found at the Galloway Picts Project  dig at Trusty's Hill fort, Gatehouse of Fleet, Dumfries and Galloway.Although not as rare as the African Red Slipware found earlier, it is still an indicator that Trusty's Hill was -like Whithorn and the Mote of Mark -connected into trade routes with Gaul (France) and the Mediterranean.

Here are some more photos of the dig taken by my son Alistair junior, 30 May 2012.
