ECCI Knight story spreads all over the world

15 March 2013

Not a place shy of making history, High School Yards was once more in the public eye on Wednesday when news of the ECCI Knight hit the wires. 

The discovery of the skeleton and grave of a Medieval Knight underneath a former car park at the building site went public and no fewer than 20 members of the Press rushed down to ECCI's building site to get the scoop.

Representatives from the BBC, STV, The Times, The Scotsman, The Daily Record and a number of news agencies all jostled for the best picture and the perfect quote to set off their coverage. 

The story was featured on the national and local broadcast news, national newspapers and international publications as far and wide as China and the USA. It was the most read on the BBC's news site with over 3.5k page views and was liked or shared on facebook and twitter over three thousand times from the pages of Huffington Post and Time Magazine.

Enquiries continue to come in from the New York Times, CBC News (Canada) & CNN...
