Iron Age skull found at Scottish golf course
Police were called to this spot at Musselburgh Links Golf Course, on the race course where bones have been found [Credit: East Lothian News] A skull unearthed during maintenance work at Musselburgh’s world famous Old Links is believed to be that of a young Iron Age woman. Police were called to the historic nine-hole golf course last Tuesday after council workers dug up human remains while repairing a bunker at the fourth green, close to Mrs Forman’s pub.
The police investigation was halted after initial forensic tests confirmed that the skull had not been buried recently.
