MHG58704 - Lithics - Clachan Church
Findspot of three regular lithic flakes during the Scotland's First Settlers Project.
Type and Period (1)
- FINDSPOT (Mesolithic to Late Bronze Age - 8000 BC? to 551 BC?)
- None recorded
Three regular flakes, two of quartz and one of chalcedonic silica, were found in a molehill just outside and beside the boundary wall to Clachan Church, Applecross, during the Scotland's First Settlers Project in 2000. Finds like this are hard to interpret but they suggest prehistoric activity in the vicinity and this is supported by other nearby evidence such as SFS 75, Applecross Manse (see MHG37293). <1>
