Iron Age chamber found under tractor

An underground chamber undisturbed since the Iron Age was revealed on North Uist when a 10ft hole opened beneath the wheel of a tractor.
Archaeologists assessed the find at Port nan Long at the north of the island, which has been sealed off from the public.

“It has lain undisturbed for 2000 years . . . I think there has been a very large pre-historic settlement on this site, possibly over thousands of years.”
