Pollok dig hopes to unearth original mansion
It was once home to a wealthy and powerful family in the west of Scotland and historians believe it stood as an elegant and opulent mansion – before it went missing.

Now the quest is on to discover just what happened to the original Pollok House and where, indeed, it was located.
In commemoration of its 150th anniversary, the Glasgow Archeological Society has been given permission to excavate sections of one of Scotland's largest municipal parks to attempt to uncover its missing history.
