nothing of the distinct appearance which the N.E. [North East] angle then also presents.
Within the enceinte of the Camp several stone & bronze implements of war have been found from
time to time, while about a mile to the South-east of it the Hill of Boghead which is mostly uncultivated
is still covered with rings, which probably denote the old British town at this part: Similar remains
existed near the Normandykes Camp which led to the supposition that they were the remains of the ancient
town "Devana".
To sum up, I would point out the following circumstances in confirmation of this really being
a Roman Camp: vizt. The rectangular nature of the object, and its general profile; its dimensions (as
stated by Watt,) its proportion, and acreage; the table land in which it stands; and the previous discovery
by an independent person of the Roman Road leading out of the North face of the very Rampart itself
as also the necessity for a Roman Camp to have existed somewhere in this District. Apart from
the above, collateral evidence is afforded by the discovery of the various remains in this neighbourhood.
