Russell Crowe views living history in Scotland

Actor Russell Crowe brought his star power with him on a recent visit to Duncarron Fort, a replica medieval village in the Carron Valley, Scotland where he found the project "very impressive" and said it would be a version of "living history".

Duncarron Fort is being created by the Clanranald Trust and will include "a motte and bailey, typical of a Scottish clan chief's residence, where people will eventually be able to to experience the atmosphere of an authentic medieval working community."

Crowe met Charlie Allan, the chief executive of heritage charity the Clanranald Truston the set of his film Gladiator.
