Chariot Find Is A Victory For Scots

Recommended Posts

The centuries-long tussle for prestige between England and Scotland may be about to end in victory for the clans, with new archaeological evidence suggesting that the first national leader of the British Isles was a Scot.

I guess they mean he was from the geographic area that later made up Scotland? Otherwise one has to question the expertise of these so called archaeologists. Its probably just the reporter screwing it up. :D

Is there any published photos from this site?

I'd love to see the items but haven't found any images after a quick search.

I agree, it would be worth seeing the items found there. The man sounds very important and the site might become rather important, archaeologically.
