Archaeologists are excited by a discovery which they say proves that early Scottish settlers travelled through the Cairngorms 7,000 years ago.

More than 80 pieces of worked flint and quartz dating from the Mesolithic period have been found at a site in Glen Dee near Braemar.

The finds were made by chance during conservation work on footpaths.

Did anyone see this story? A man found a Neolithic axe head in Fife and was asked by the Police to hand it over as anything like that found under Scots law belongs to 'The Crown'. He refused and four CID officers came to his house with a search warrant, took it off him and charged him with theft.
