Unique Bronze Age burial uncovered in Scotland

Archaeologists have discovered an 4,000-year-old Bronze Age grave and artifacts in Perthshire, Scotland.

Few remains of the body were found, but the archaeologists said it would have lain on a bed of quartz pebbles in sand, in a large stone coffin.

A bronze dagger with a gold band was discovered inside the grave, along with a leather bag, wooden objects and plant matter, which could be floral tributes.

  1. What a great story…I recently got back DNA results for my Dad, who’s father’s line goes back to Scotland. However, his highest percentage of matches came from Northern Ireland and Wales.

    Thanks for these interesting stories.
