Site Notes

Fox/etal/1943, 205--209, records that the stone was found during ploughing on the farm of Maesllyn, in December 1942. The farmer then dug the stone out and the heavy rain washed it clean. He and his brother then dug a large hole hoping to find treasure, but found a pavement of flat slabs next to which the stone had been placed on edge. Cyril Fox examined the site and region in February 1943, but the damage to the immediate site make his observations provisional. Fox then investigated the possibility that the stone, from what is now a remote area, was placed next to the line of the Roman road, and concluded that this was indeed a possibility.
