Did Norsemen bring Christianity to Scotland?

From the BBC: Uncovering north’s Christian past.

A group of archaeologists are trying to establish if Norsemen brought Christianity to Caithness before St Columba arrived on Iona.

The question has arisen after a dig at an ancient church site at the coastal village of Dunbeath.

Pottery dating back to the 6th Century has recently been found in the area.

A University of Nottingham team is to carry out further exploration which they hope could show evidence of an even earlier Christian church. [continue, see video]

  1. I like the story of the husband and wife archaeological team who decided to retire and establish their farm and in the process make a major archeaological find. Very cool.
