Medieval find at new school site

Archaeologists in Kinross have uncovered a range of finds thought to be part of a medieval settlement.

The discovery was made on the site of the new Kinross High School, opposite Lethangie Farm.

The two fields forming the development site have been recognised as being of archaeological interest.

A Scheduled Ancient Monument - a site designated as being of archaeological importance - has been identified in the south field.

Excavation work, which began in March, was carried out by archaeological consultants SUAT Ltd as part of planning consent conditions imposed by Perth and Kinross Council before work on the new school begins.
