Archaeologists excavating Pollok Park in search of Dark Ages settlement
Archaeologists have begun excavating Glasgow's Pollok Park, hoping to discover the remains of the earliest inhabitants of the Pollok Estate.

They are aiming to uncover a Dark Ages settlement which predates today's Pollok House, the 250-year-old home of the Maxwell family.

The dig, which began yesterday, is being carried out by members of Glasgow Archeological Society, as part of its 150th anniversary commemorations this year.
