"Very significant" Pictish fort found off the coast of Scotland

A team of archaeologists from the University of Aberdeen are investigating a remote sea stack off the coast of Aberdeenshire, Scotland, to learn if it hosts the remains of a "very significant" Pictish fort. Excavations have so far uncovered what is believed to be "the remains of a house, a fireplace and ramparts."

"Here we've got clear evidence of people living on the sea stack at least for part of the year. Certainly people are living here for long enough to create this really nice well-constructed hearth and these lovely floor layers," said lead archaeologist Dr Gordon Noble.
