Katherine had to go to Glasgow for some training for work so the rest of us decided to go up for the weekend. So while Katherine was at her training Phil, Meaghann and I decided to go around and have a look at some of the historic sites around Glasgow. We went and had a look at some ruins of a Roman Bath dating back to the 2nd century AD. The baths were right in front of a block of units. We then went for a bit of a drive and to a Roman fort. Well we started walking up a dirt road which just lead up to a farm after walking a couple of kms we got to the top of the path. In front of us there was a structure that looked to a water tank (It had a dome on top) which we later learned was an Iron Age fort. We then climbed over a barbed wire fence and walked through the bog up to what we think and believe is the roman fort. We decided to walk out through these fields looking behind us making sure there wasn't a bull or mad farmer chasing after us. We then went up through a forest trying to find an old Roman wall. After walking for about 45min walking up this path we decided to turn around and go back to the car. We ended up walking along side the wall almost the whole time only we didn't really know about it cause it now looks like a mound of moss covered dirt running up the whole length of the path. We also ran into a White-Tailed Deer.


We then met up with Katherine after her training we went to the Hunterian Museum. This museum was amazing if had some much stuff ranging from dinosaurs to medical stuff. The best thing I love was that they had a Tasmanian Tiger and also a Egyptian mummy in a sarcophagus that has never been opened. The next day we all decided to go to the Glasgow Science Centre and had a good play with all the different exhibits.
