Dig archaeologists uncover the remains of ancient body in field

The remains of what is thought to be an Iron Age resident have been found in a field in Caithness.

The skull, teeth and other bones were discovered during an archaeology excavation of a broch at Thrumster, just south of Wick.

The contents of the makeshift grave are the latest to emerge from a drive to unearth the still-buried secrets of an archaeology-rich area.
