Explore this Iron Age underground passage, or souterrain. Look out for the reused bronze age cup and ring marked stone.
Tealing Earth House is not a dwelling, but a stone-lined souterrain, an iron age underground passage, the purpose of which is widely debated. When it was discovered in the 1800s, a magnificent cup-and-ring marked stone was found re-used in one of its walls.
It is typical of the souterrains of Angus, with a long, narrow chamber. Finds inside the chamber indicate that it dates to the Roman occupation of Scotland in the early centuries AD.
Tealing Earth House is a few metres from the late 1500s Tealing Dovecot.
