Archaeologists Research Bishops' Lives at Scotland's Fetternear House

The archaeological dig at Fetternear House in rural Aberdeenshire, Scotland, does not focus on finding objects so much as studying the lives of the residence's owners, several bishops.

The original plan for the dig at Fetternear was to study the architecture of the house, but a large number of objects have been found that give researchers a glimpse of what life was like for the bishops who lived in the residence. Among the famous owners was Bishop Cheyne, who remained loyal to the English king and against the efforts of William Wallace.
