Description

A topographic survey of the now-submerged crannog in Eadarloch, Loch Trieg was carried out by AOC Archaeology in 2007. The work was undertaken at the same time as the sampling of structural timbers from the site during a period of low water in the loch. Dendrochronological analysis of the oak and pine timbers was inconclusive, but the radiocarbon dates for its construction and use was found to tie-in with its use in the C16 as recorded in documentary sources. <1>
