Cave-Find Rifle From 19th Century
The remains of the ancient weapon were discovered last year in a sea cave on the St Cyrus National Nature Reserve.
Although experts have identified the rifle, it has remained a mystery how it got to the cave in the first place. The gun will now go on display at the St Cyrus Nature Reserve visitor centre, which is run by Scottish Natural Heritage.
Experts at the National War Museum, in Edinburgh, concluded the rifle was made in Saint Etienne, in south eastern France.
