Broch casts light on Picts’ Roman contacts

ARCHAEOLOGISTS have uncovered an Iron Age broch that they believe became the seat of a Celtic chieftain and casts new light on contact between the Picts and the Roman Empire.
The team from the Strathearn Environs and Royal Forteviot (Serf) project say the Iron Age broch they have found near the village of Dunning in Perthshire is the first of its kind to be discovered in the Lowlands for a century and is exquisitely preserved.
