Still Waters

Skulls and leg and arm bones from the Middle Ages have been uncovered in a Highlands village.

The human remains and the foundations of what is believed to be a chapel were discovered during work to lay new water pipes in Kingussie's Mill Road.

It is believed the finds are linked to a pre-16th Century Carmelite friary.

Archaeologist Steven Birch said the "jumbled mass of bones" may have been moved from where they were originally buried to make way for the chapel.

Highland Council had requested that an archaeologist monitor Scottish Water's excavation work in Mill Road because the site was near a known historic burial ground.

Why are people intringued when bones are found. People have been burying the dead for centuries, we keep digging, no surprises if some of them are found.
