July 2015

Description

Disturbed remains of what appear to be three human skeletons were recorded and recovered from under the floor of an early 19th century building. The remains appear to have been roughly placed in a shallow scoop and covered in beach cobbles. C14 dating of one long bone gave a date of 1864BP, contemporary with occupation of the nearby Applecross broch. <1>
