Scope and Content Broch at Clickhimin, Lerwick, Shetland This broch is built on a promontory on the Loch of Clickhimin. It would have originally stood on a rocky islet connected to the mainland by a causeway, but the water-level was lowered during the 19th century. It is a multi-period site. This is a view of the remains of some of the earlier structures. Little remains as the stones were reused in later buildings which were often built over them. As with all complicated sites this leads to more than one interpretation of the site. Finds from the site include many domestic utensils and pottery. There was also a fragment of glass from a Roman bowl. This bowl was probably made in Alexandria in Egypt around AD 100. All the finds are now in the Royal Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh.
