(© Rubicon Heritage Services)EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND—A medieval floor tile and a circular, stone-lined well have been unearthed at Scotland’s Bridgend Farm. Archaeologists from Rubicon Heritage Services and a team of volunteers are looking for the remains of a sixteenth-century chapel built by Sir Simon Preston. “The excavations unearthed clues which prove there was activity in the area at the time the chapel was constructed and in use,” a spokesperson told Culture 24. The floor tile is from a high-status building. The well and pottery from the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries are thought to predate the chapel.
