A broch has been discovered near the village of Dunning in Perth
The Dunning broch contained Roman trade goods within
Though not associated with castles SCA members will be interested to learn that a broch has been discovered near the village of Dunning in Perth. This is the first of its kind to be discovered in the Lowlands in 100 years and what's more it's in great condition! The remains consist of a massive stone wall more than 2m in height with 5m thick drystone walls.
The broch is situated at the top of a hill with a 360 degrees view of the countryside and would have visibly dominated its surroundings. Finds include a wide range of Roman trade goods dating from the 1st - 2nd centuries. It was destroyed by burning.
