Archaeology professor Steven Driscoll, part of the Glasgow team, said the site was uniquely well preserved.
“What’s unusual is that it hasn’t been messed with. This is a loo that hasn’t been flushed for 500 years. We have a kind of sealed environment, containing artefacts like the earliest known piece of Scottish music, which we found scratched into pieces of slate,” he said.
