Cromarty Archaeology Report

The dramatic storms and high tides of December 2012 eroded an area of shore below the Reeds Park in Cromarty, exposing layers of shell midden, ash and soil in which fish bone, animal bone and broken medieval pottery were found. Steven Birch, who lives in Cromarty and is director of West Coast Archaeological Services saw the potential of further investigation and the Cromarty Medieval Burgh Community Archaeology Project was set up. The fieldwork culminated in a hugely successful excavation in the summer of 2013, with volunteers of all ages enjoying the experience of working alongside professional archeologists.

This talk will bring us up to date with the findings of the dig and plans for the project in 2014.
