Archaeologists uncover medieval defences on grounds of historic castle


Archaeologists have made a surprising discovery on the grounds of an Aberdeenshire castle.

Experts excavating at Fyvie Castle, near Turriff, expected to uncover a 400-year-old garden.

Instead they have discovered what they believe to be an 800-year-old defence system which they believe will help them learn more about the castle's history.
