In the ruins of the Scottish castle found a mysterious room with the bones
The builders made a disturbing discovery: they found in the ruins of a medieval castle Mingari (Mingary Castle), located in Scotland, a mysterious room with bone fragments.
According to the publication Daily Mail, because of the remote location of a Scottish castle Mingari, ranked among the monuments of architecture, it was abandoned at the end of the XVIII century, and gradually turned into ruins.
According to historian John Heyletta (Jon Haylett), the main temple construction was stopped in the XIII century, and over the past 200 years it has remained abandoned.
It is currently owned by Donald Houston (Donald Houston), who asked the builders to restore the majestic building in order to revive its past glory. As it turned out, abandoned Mingari managed to present as an owner, and historians intriguing surprise. The fact is that during the restoration of the builders found in the northern wall of the building pass and started to dig.
"On the outside wall of the building has arched windows that can not be seen from the inside, so we thought, where there is a room and no mistake, - says John Heylett. - We have already managed to reach the room with stone flooring and walls and oak beams. Team will remove the stone blocks to get to the lancet holes, and then we will for the first time in 500 years, will be able to look out of the window. "
A further study found a tiny room that only the objects located in it were fragments of bones.
Historians recognize that they can not explain the purpose of the room, whose size is only 6 feet (1, 8 meters) tall and 6 feet wide. But hope that the results of the excavations will give them the answers to many questions.
"It's hard to describe the exciting feeling of covering you at the time of the descent into the room, which was locked in the XV or XVI century, - continues the story Heylett. - The excavation must be completed in the near future, and I can not wait for this moment. "
Castle Mingari had military importance, as it is located on the beach. The assurances of historians, King James IV of the Stuart dynasty used it as a reference point during the battle with Clan Donald.
