Site Notes

Fox/1939, 39: `Its site, as recorded on the Ordinance Survey maps, was on the eastern outskirts of Port Talbot, beside the fomer course of the main road, near an old toll cottage. In view of the three other milestones found I think there is little doubt that it is not far from its original position on the Roman coast road; whether it was moved when it was re-cut as a memorial stone, there is no means of knowing. It provides an interesting sidelight on the decay of central authority and respect for public property in the Dark Ages'.
