NO6310 : Constantine's Cave?

near to Craighead, Fife, Great Britain

Constantine's Cave?
Constantine's Cave?
During his reign, King Constantine I of Scotland had several Viking incursions to contend with, and is reputed to have been killed near Fife Ness in 874 by Danish Viking invaders who dumped his body in a cave. It could well have been this one, but local tradition favours a larger one nearby NO6310 : Constantine's Cave and NO6310 : Constantine's Cave. But other historians claim that he was killed near where Newport-on-Tay now is, while yet others say he died peacefully, miles away from here.
