Here is a picture of the metalworking tongs from one of the palisade postholes at Rhynie- the gripping end is to the left with the handles extending to the right. We (Ewan Campbell!) don't know of any other early medieval examples from Scotland - there are parallels from the royal site at Garranes in County Cork - a triple vallate ring fort.
