stirling_medieval_friaryHuman remains, a section of a wall and a “large assemblage” of medieval material have been found at the headquarters of a 13th century Dominican friary destroyed in Stirling during the Reformation in 1559.

Archaeologists say it is unclear if the skeletal parts of the individual, discovered opposite Stirling Railway Station, date from the foundation of the nearby medieval friary, in 1233, or several centuries later.

“For Stirling, this is the first time that a medieval site has been subject to modern excavation on this scale.

“This is an exciting and totally fascinating find,” said Murray Cook, the Archaeologist for Stirling Council.
