Ancient Scottish site reveals its secrets
Archaeologists are set to learn about new discoveries at one of Scotland's most important ancient sites. Investigators began work at Traprain Law in East Lothian after a major fire in 2003 which damaged some historical remains and endangered others.
The experts called in to carry out a full assessment made a number of finds, including 5,000-year-old Neolithic rock art and Bronze Age axes. The other discoveries included evidence of a jewellery workshop and part of a roadway.
Fraser Hunter, a curator at the National Museums of Scotland, said the discoveries all helped to reinforce Traprain's reputation as a power and population centre in pre-history.
