NM 69190 42650 (Canmore ID: 22449) The ScottishMedieval Castles and Chapels C14 Project (SMCCCP) is a nationwide buildings archaeology project investigating the archaeological potential of building materials surviving within upstanding medieval structures. The SMCCCP combines the survey and analysis of medieval buildings and environments, with the analysis and radiocarbon dating of surviving building materials. The project seeks to constrain building chronologies, and investigate the technical conversion and palaeoenvironmental potential of source materials. This work was undertaken 1 April 2015 – March 2016.

The upstanding masonry of Ardtornish Castle was analysed and a number of building and environmental materials recorded and sampled. These materials are undergoing further analysis and, where appropriate, will be AMS radiocarbon dated.
