Easter Monday sees Ian Skinner taking the Old Melrose Walk at 1.30pm, and the first Trimontium Walk is on April 9 at 1.30pm from the museum. The trust played host to a visiting archaeologist from Liverpool, who was checking on the glassware found at Trimontium on which she is writing a monograph to be published later this year.
