Book bag reveals the education of ancient Scotland

Archaeologists have discovered that an extremely rare leather artifact, thought to be 1400 years old, was actually a satchel for books.

"It tells us that there may have been books at this site, which is very unusual," said Dr. Ewen Campbell, from Glasgow University's archaeology department, part of the team involved in the archaeological work at Loch Glashan in Argyll. "Literacy was largely thought to be restricted to the monasteries at this time."
