A Pictish stone described as a 'once-in-a-lifetime find' has been uncovered in the Scottish Highlands. The stone, thought to have been carved around 12,000 years ago, is decorated with a number of Pictish symbols and is said by experts to be of national importance. Comment: This above age appears to be a typo as the stone is thought to be 1,200 years old. It is believed the stone, discovered at an early Christian church site in Dingwall, originally stood at more than 7.8 feet (2.4 metres) high. It now measures around 4.9 feet (1.5 metres), having been broken over the years and been reused as a grave marker in the 1790s.
