Ancient finds point to Pictish fort
The discovery of a possible Pictish fort near a north-east village has further strengthened the claim that the site was once an important ancient political settlement.
Finds of pottery, bronze pins, glass and amber beads just outside Rhynie last year led archaeologists to the conclusion that the Aberdeenshire site was an important stronghold around AD500. The Rhynie Environs Archaeological Project (REAP) is excavating a new trench at the Craw Stane site, just outside the village, and with the help of aerial photographs they have begun to map out what appears to be the remains of a fort.
