For anyone who likes to keep up with these things!



The first Roman tombstone found in Scotland for 170 years has been unearthed at Carberry, near Inveresk.

The debate here is..... do they arrive with the Romans or after. Rabbits are traditionally added to the Norman conquest in 1066. However, we might have to let old Norman off the hook on this one.
