From the BBC:
The remains of a medieval village in the Borders have been uncovered during the laying of a new water main.
Scottish Water was carrying out the works at Philiphaugh on the outskirts of Selkirk.
It was laying new pipes between Howden and Yarrowford water treatment works when the discovery was made.
Initial studies suggested it was an Anglo-Saxon settlement, but closer inspection indicated it may have been the site of a medieval village.
