Archaeologists closer to discovering Scottish palace

Medieval texts have called the palace of Kenneth MacAlpine, the first king of a united Scotland, a stone building, but modern researchers believe it would have been wooden. Now recent discoveries lead the experts to think they may be close to zeroing in on the location.

Kenneth Brophy of Glasgow University will lead a team this summer to hopefully find the site. "It's allegedly in the Foteviot area somewhere and various attempts have been made to find it archaeologically before, but they've not been successful," said Brophy.
