"Impressive" Roman finds hold up clinic construction in Scotland

Residents of Musselburgh, Scotland may have to wait a little longer for their health care while city officials and archaeologists decide how to proceed with the excavation of "human remains, the bones of horses and weapons and culinary tools" dating to the Roman era.

Experts consider the discoveries at Musselburgh to be "among the most impressive ever discovered in Scotland from that period," and hope that they will provide a clearer picture of 2nd century Roman life in the area.

In addition to remains and Roman walls, archaeologists have found evidence of Scottish life dating back 5,000 years.
