July 2007

Description

Walkover surveys were carried out at the deserted townships of Langdale, Grumbeg and Achadh An Eas by GUARD in 2007 as part of the Strathnaver Province Archaeology Project. The project had been designed to further understanding of Medieval rural settlement on a regional scale across northern Sutherland, to inform future management of this archaeological resource and to encourage heritage awareness and a local sense of historical identity in the region. The 2007 season involved three walkover surveys in Strathnaver, in order to assess the potential of several township sites for evidence of chronological complexity and early structures. These assessments involved comparing the visible surface remains in the three townships to those recorded on the first edition Ordnance Survey maps and identifying potentially early features. <1>
