Farmers plough unearthes Bronze Age tomb

A farmer ploughing his field in Scotland has discovered a Bronze Age cist tomb.

He told The Galloway Gazette: “The slab just came up when I was ploughing last Thursday. I noticed immediately that it was unlike any other stone in he area. It was a huge flat stone and it got stuck in the plough.

“I had a guddle in the hole and found the skeleton. I then reported it to the archeology unity at the council and they will take it from there. I expect they will excavate the site at some point.
