    Partially preserved Pictish remains were found on the final day of a project

    Archaeologists said it may be difficult to assign a sex to the skeleton but it is thought to be a female


    The 'ghostly outline' of a woman who died around 1,400 years ago has been discovered in the Highlands.

    Archaeologists excavating near Muir of Ord on the Black Isle found the partially preserved Pictish remains on the final day of a three-week project.

    Dark patches revealed the stains of a skeleton that has been broken down in acidic soil of the ancient grave.
