Dumb archaelogical pun #16,347 Can you dig it? Glasgow's oldest building found

A TIME team have made a breakthrough discovery after unearthing a medieval bishop's palace dating back to the 14th century.

The archaeologists claim they have uncovered Glasgow's oldest building after finding the ruins. The palace, which sits in Easterhouse in the east end of the city, is believed to date back to 1323 and knocks the current title holder off the historical top spot.

Until now it was thought that Provan Hall, built between 1460 and 1480, was the oldest building in the city.
