Biggar archaeologists will appear in the BBC documentary Digging in Britain series this autumn.

Filming took place at the weekend at Daer where the group is excavating a series of prehistoric sites which have been revealed by forestry planting.

The location chosen for the film, which is about the Stone Age, is a Mesolithic hunter-gatherer camp site lying on the side of a hill and overlooking the Daer Water.

Group organiser Tam Ward said: “The site is over six thousand years old and has lain undisturbed until the forest plough exposed it.
