Glasgow Archaeologists Unearth 16th Century Monastery

Evening Times: The medieval ruins of the Francisan Friary have been discovered near the site of Science Project, a project planned to bring jobs into the city of Glasgow, Scotland. Archaeologists are battling the economy and the future to prevent plans for a new Science Project, to be built in downtown Glasgow, from disturbing the ruins of a 16th century Franciscan monastery. So far, researchers have found 21 skeletons, the foundations of buildings, and an ancient well.

"It is very exciting that a treasure like this could be unearthed in the very heart of a big city like Glasgow," said head archaeologist, Magnar Dallard.

The 500-year-old well will be restored and become the centerpiece of the new project.
