(Photograph) - Aberdeen University chaplain Gillean MacLean with the last surviving original bell from King's College Chapel. The 234-year-old bell is one of 13 that were sold during an 18th-century funding crisis. Most were broken up for scrap, but the smallest was discovered in an Aberdeenshire church. Jane Geddes of the university's history of art department said: 'This is the bell that was used to tell the scholars and the students when to go to prayer and when to go for lectures'.
