Mr. Soutar believes this to be the same moss that the following was found in. "Early in the last century, there was dug out of a Moss in the neighbourhood of Maws, the remains of a Roman Soldier in complete armour. The skeleton was found in an upright posture; and it is supposed that he had been drowned in attempting to cross the marsh, either in flight or pursuit." (See Craig Roman for further information relative to the Battle of Mons Grampius)
