Dr John Reid is a recently retired NHS consultant, who has been a Roman history enthusiast since childhood. He has been involved in the Trimontium Trust for some years, and its Chairman since 2021. A fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and Newcastle, he has led several Trust initiatives including the facial restoration of Trimontium Man, the fort reconstruction, Trust expeditions to Rome, Sicily and Libya and the groundbreaking archaeological investigations at Burnswark Hill.
Of some significance is his new book, The Eagle and the Bear, which considers the Roman influence on Scotland and the peoples beyond the Roman frontier.
