Neolithic settlement discovered at Midross, Scotland

A 'national treasure trove' of artifacts was unearthed by archaeologists in the Loch Lomond national park in Scotland. Beside finding many artefacts the scientists found a number of roundhouses believed to be from a Neolithic or Bronze Age settlement covering more than 1000 square yards. Also found was an iron age settlement.
     The Glasgow University Archaeological Research Division archaeologists were working on a 300 acre site when the settlements were found. A glass bead from the iron age was found and is believed to be only the second example to be found in Scotland.
