Report due on prehistoric Scottish bones
A report on the discovery of prehistoric human remains on a beach at Uig on Lewis (Western Isles, Scotland) is to be submitted to government agency Historic Scotland. Two skeletons were excavated by a team from the University of Glasgow after locals alerted the authorities to the remains. Archaeologists believe the bones could date to the Bronze Age, 3,000-4,000 years ago. The bones and other prehistoric artefacts were revealed by erosion.
