    Scotland's Oldest Tartan identified.

    A length of tartan was found in a peat bog. Yes, yes, I know its all been said before! But this is different.

    The Glen Affric tartan, as it is known, has been dated reliably by radio carbon dating to be from a broad date range of from around 1500 AD to 1650 AD, with the period of 1500 AD to 1600 AD as being "the most probable".

    I am sure our well known tartan historian will have something to say about this.
