EHG153 - Excavation - A836 Lednagualin to Ben Ainnie

Technique(s)

Organisation

Centre for Field Archaeology, University of Edinburgh

Date

08 July 1996

Description

This project involved the excavation of a number of archaeological sitesbefore commencement of road construction. The research was funded by Highland Regional Council and managed by the Highland Archaeological Service. Unfortunately, due to programming of the overall road improvement project, it proved impossible to conduct the archaeological research during the most suitable weather conditions. Indeed, when fieldwork commenced, a particularly severe period of rain, sleet and snow ensued. The excavation of the hut circle was therefore completed in spring, when stratigraphic layers could be distinguished. <1>
