2,500-year-old roundhouse found in Scotland

Published on May 3rd, 2011 | by Admin


The walls of a structure which dates back to 700 to 500 B.C has been found in Caithness, Scotland.

Mr Heald said he believed the site may have been occupied long before the Iron Age and provided habitation to various communities for 1,000 years.

He said: “We have dug down to what might be the earliest wall on the site and this wall may have been used to seal off the site as a territory, as if someone was saying ‘this land is mine’.

“Typical of sites like these, it was reused and modified at different times.”
