The name Musselburgh is Old English in origin, with " mussel " referring to the shellfish, and " burgh " derived from the Old English for " town ". Musselburgh was first settled by the Romans in the years following their invasion of Scotland in AD 80. They built a fort a little inland from the mouth of the River Esk, at Inveresk. The Battle of Pinkie Cleugh was fought south of Musselburgh.
