Iron Age Burial Discovery May be Scotland's Richest Site

The Herald: The discovery of an Iron Age warrior complete with sword and adornments may herald the richest archaeological site in Scotland. Workers on a housing project in Alloa, Clackmannanshire uncovered the skeleton of a warrior surrounded by his weapons. Experts believe he died between 200 BCE and 200 CE, and they hope that more graves will be found on the site.

The site is near a Bronze Age cemetery discovered in 1828, but this site may have been protected by greenhouses which existed until the 1970s. George Tainsh, director of the housing development, plans to cooperate with further excavations.
