Archaeologists believe they have unearthed the remains of a 900 year old bishops palace in a field in the Scottish Borders.

A team of experts from Glasgow University and local volunteers are excavating the site in the village of Ancrum. They have uncovered what they believe is one of the walls of the Palace which could date as far back as the 12th century. It's thought to have been used by the Bishops of Glasgow who visited the palace on a regular basis to carry out of a variety of business.

The investigation into what lies under the field was organised by Scottish Borders Council. Local legend has long talked of a buried palace for hundreds of years. It could be one of the most significant finds in Scottish medieval history. The dig finishes on Friday and the site will be covered up while a decision is made on what to do with it in the future.
