Archaeologists from the University of Reading have been sharing the tale of how a herd of pigs led to them discovering the oldest evidence of human activity in Scotland.
The team were alerted to Islay in the Inner Hebrides after a herd of pigs dug up uprooted mesolithic items while foraging along the coastline. The scientists discovered a set of Ice Age stone tools used for hunting - including sharp points used for hunting big game and scrapers for cleaning skins. The items date back 12,000 years.

Archaeologists have made a dramatic discovery in Wiltshire, which has led to the town of Amesbury now officially being declared the oldest settlement in Britain.
It was previously thought that Thatcham in Berkshire held the honour. But carbon dating of objects dug up 40 miles west of Thatcham - in Amesbury, now reveal that humans have lived there - for more than ten millennia.
The revelation has also thrown new light on why Stonehenge was built close to the Wiltshire town. Martin Dowse reports.

Protesters say the road is unnecessary and a blight on the landscape.
