12th Century Farm Discovered Beneath Scottish Hotel

The remnants of a building dating to 1150 and a garden wall have been discovered on the grounds of the Norton House Hotel, near Ingliston, Scotland. Archaeologists feel that the find has "national significance."

The medieval ruins were found beneath a Victorian mansion turned hotel and included a cobbled walkway and substantial amounts of pottery. Historical records show that the "fermtoun" of Norton existed in the 12th century.
