Angus used to be a county which used to be known as Forfashire until the 18th century. It was in 1928 when Angus was reverted back to being called its Ancient name and it carries it until today. It is considered a lieutenancy area while it remains to be a registration county. The council district that controls the different administrative functions in 1975 is now located at the Tayside Region.
Its early history was recorded during the Neolithic era. Several materials collected from postholes in Friockheim have been used to trace the rich history of the area. Most of those that were found were basically used for religious purposes if not for agriculture.
