What could turn out to be one of Scotland’s largest Pictish burial grounds is being excavated on the Black Isle in the Highlands. Archaeologists have confirmed the presence of a number of barrows, or burial mounds, near Muir of Ord. Enclosures ranging in size from about 8m (26ft) to more than 40m (131ft) across have also been uncovered. Archaeologists said the possible Pictish barrow cemetery could be about 1,400 years old.
