The publication in 1911 of James Curle's excavation of the Roman frontier fort of Newstead, ancient Trimontium, near Melrose in the Scottish Borders was a landmark in Roman frontier studies. This volume was conceived as a celebration of this landmark on its centenary, looking back to Curle and his work, and looking forward to how the picture is changing.

Review quote

'What was special about Curle's report of his excavation at Newstead fort, published in 1911, is captured by a phrase in its title, repeated in that of this new book: "and its people". ... This was something new, as some of the contributors to this beautifully presented and sensibly priced volume make clear.' British Archaeology
