St Donnan's grave found on Eigg

St Donnan, who brought Christianity to Scotland's West Highlands, was killed by Viking riaders in the early 7th century. Now archaeologists from the University of Birmingham are investing remains found at Kildonnan Graveyard to ascertain if the body is that of the saint.

“I think it is fair to say that the findings surpassed all our expectations," said Emeritus Professor John Hunter, a forensic archaeologist. “We found remains of a sub-circular enclosure and remains of seventh century activity, which would fit in with Donnan’s time."
