This is a fascinating document about some of the folk who lived in Twechar. I find it interesting in there that we see links with Norway, France and the Netherlands! https://twecharpitvillage.com/history/twechar-folk/
You can follow the path from Twechar up to Bar Hill fort on the Antonine Wall which is interesting to visit. https://www.historicenvironment.scot/visit-a-place/places/antonine-wall-bar-hill-fort/ The Romans were of course one of our earlier links with the continent of Europe.
