From the bbc.co.uk article:
Archaeologists have discovered the earliest evidence of human beings ever found in Scotland.

The flints were unearthed in a ploughe field near Biggar in South Lanarkshire.

They are similar to tools known to have been used in the Netherlan
and northern Germany 14,000 years ago, or 12,000 BC.
They were probably used by hunters to kill reindeer, mammoth and giant elk and to cut up prey and prepare their skins.
The discovery conjures up a picture of wandering groups of hunters making their way across dry land where the North Sea is now, after the end of the Ice Age.
The details are revealed in the latest edition of British Archaeology magazine.
