Archaeologists to investigate after human skull found on golf course
The bones, thought to be 2500 years old, were found by council workers in a bunker.
Archaeologists are to investigate an East Lothian golf course after a human skull was dug up.
The bones were found by council workers who were carrying out winter maintenance on a bunker on Musselburgh Links Golf Course at 12pm Tuesday.
Officers from Lothian and Borders Police dug up the remains and sent them to Dundee University to be examined.
On Wednesday, East Lothian Council were told the remains were historical and sent their archaeologists to look at the site.
They believe the skull is around 2500 years old.
A police spokesman said: "Lothian and Borders Police responded to the Musselburgh Links Golf Course at around 12pm following the discovery of potential human remains.
"Enquiries are ongoing and the remains will be sent for further analysis."
Musselburgh Links is officially the oldest golf course in the world.
