Hope of finding first King’s home

Archaeologists believe they could be closer to discovering the site of the palace belonging to the first King of a united Scotland. The academics at Glasgow University have been studying documents and previous archaeological finds to narrow down the location in Perthshire. They will return in August to Forteviot in the hope of uncovering evidence of Kenneth MacAlpine’s wooden castle.  MacAlpine died at the Palace of Forteviot in 858.
