Longhouse found in Aberdeenshire

ARCHAEOLOGISTS have uncovered the remains of a "nationally significant" medieval farm building near an electrical substation in Aberdeenshire.

The GUARD Archaeology team, led by Maureen Kilpatrick, discovered a 14th/15th century longhouse which was probably divided between space for animals at the east end and living space to the west.
