Archaeology Notes

NM69SE 36 6666 8898

NM 6639 8656 (Arisaig) to NM 6790 9194 (Kinsadel) Following field survey and test pitting (DES 2000, 47), evaluation work was undertaken on seven sites.

NM 6666 8898 Site 6 (stone structures). Three different structures were investigated, and subsequent area excavation revealed a relatively deep stratigraphic sequence beneath. A discrete lens of charcoal within this sequence yielded a calibrated date of AD 1418-88 (see radiocarbon report, 124).
