Date

October 2006

Description

Archaeological excavations were carried out by Applecross Broch Community Archaeology Project assisted by professional archaeologists, over an 8 day period during October 2006 as their first season of investigations at the broch site at Applecross, Wester Ross. During this excavation, the complexity of the site was revealed as more extensive than previously believed. Two opposing quadrants, trenches 1 and 2, were opened at right angles to each other covering internal features and extending to the inner, and in places outer, walls of the broch. By the end of the excavation prehistoric pottery and stone implements had been uncovered and clear indications confirmed that structural remains extended deeper than previously considered. <1> A full report on the 2006 and subsequent investigations to 2010 has also been produced. <2>
