4000 YEAR OLD BRONZE AGE TOMB FOUND

Sunday, September 17, 2006

A bronze age Cairn was discovered near Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland when a forestry stumbled and fell into what appeared to be an old well.

Archaeologists believe it marks the grave of a cremated royal warrior whose remains were laid to rest with great ceremony is a stone tomb built by his subjects on a prominent hilltop.

The 30ft wide cairn tomb cairn at Raven Craig has been taken under the protection of Historic Scotland. It is less than a mile from the famous burial site at Cairnpapple.

It is believed that the cairn originally had a covered top but was plundered by robbers.
