  • Scotland - Father and son buried together for 2 millenia

    http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-...-burial-020284

    "A father and son buried together about 2,000 years ago in Linlithgow, Scotland, have been unearthed in the course of an archaeological dig. Archaeologists excavating the tomb say the pair were wealthy artisan weavers.

    The two men, aged about 20 and 40, died at different times but were placed together in a stone tomb, a cist, near the present site of the House of the Binns, a National Trust for Scotland site. Dating shows the father died between 92 BC and 65 AD, while scientists estimate the son died some time later, around 44 BC to 79 AD."

      None as yet.

      The find was first reported on the 28th of March, 2015:

      Will take a while for any DNA results to come through.

        Oops
        That would be a bit quick.
        Hope they do the DNA.
        Still a bit lowland for me though, male line is up in Banff.
