Archaeology Notes

NG25SW 1.01 2311 5042

Mann and Curle note the discovery of a small terra-cotta votive offering in the form of a model of a bale of hides or fleeces at the broch and suggest that it was probably brought by a trader from the south during the Roman period, as the local population did not use terra-cotta.
