  The Heroic Age: Post-Severan Cramond
Some of the coins from Cramond are of particular interest: the coin of Tetricus came from the spoil heap associated with the bathhouse excavations and was minted at Cologne; as it comes from a western mint it may well be genuine (Robertson 1983:408).
Cramond therefore means "fort on the river Almond," and the name must have originated prior to the conquest of this area by Anglo-Saxon Northumbria in the middle of the seventh century.
Cramond was probably controlled by a succession of royal owners in a manner similar to that suggested for some Roman forts in England, where churches occur from the seventh century onward (Bidwell 1997:108-9).
