Experts probe Broughty Castle Green hole





Archaeologists are using the appearance of a mysterious hole at Broughty Castle green in Dundee to discover more about what lies underneath the grass.

It is suspected there may be several military buildings below the ground, including pits where mines were armed.

There were plans in the 1880s to put a minefield in the Tay for extra defence.

The archaeologists will also study why the 30cm hole opened up, so the safety of the area can be improved and conservation of the remains considered.
