Early link between Picts & Romans found in Scotland

A team of archaeologists, known as the Strathern Environs and Royal Forteviot (SERF) project, have uncovered findings which could re-write early Scottish history. The team comprises archaeologists and students from Glasgow, Aberdeen and Chester Universities, as well as other volunteers from Scotland, Europe and North America.

The site is located at Dunning, in Perthshire, and the team involved has been together for some time, with quite a few discoveries before this one, including an early Bronze Age burial and a Pictish royal centre. Within the 4000-year-old grave the archaeologists found a stunning bronze dagger and beautifully preserved flowers thought to be the earliest floral tribute ever discovered in the UK. This find, however, pushes all others into the shadows.
