Remains of 12th century tolbooth found in St. Andrews

In 12th century Scotland, the "tolbooth or praetorium was the office from which the provost and baillies organised the running of the newly-created burgh." Now archaeologists believe they have found the remains of the tolbooth in St. Andrews.

21st century technology, such as high-resolution vertical aerial photography, was used to find what is believed to be the country's oldest tolbooth, which also served as the headquarters of the town council.
