Regional trainee Mark McGettigan, 14, seen here with University of Glasgow archaeologist Stephen Driscoll, has an enduring interest in archaeology. He and his mom signed up with the Govan dig as volunteers. McGettigan was utilizing a probe in the church graveyard when it struck something difficult and made a sound. He and 2 archaeologists on the dig started to excavate.

” I wasn’t too sure at the start what it was,” McGettigan stated in a declaration. “However then we talked to the records and we recognized it was among the lost Govan Stones.”.
