Abstract:
As part of a wider research programme of experimental archaeology at Calanais Farm, Isle of Lewis, Scotland, a number of experimental hearths were constructed, based on excavated evidence from the Late Iron Age houses at Bostadh, Lewis. Following controlled and repeated burning of different fuel sources, mineral magnetic measurements were taken from the resulting ash samples. These results were compared with measurements taken from Iron Age and medieval ash samples from the multiperiod site of Guinnerso, Lewis. It is suggested that for these archaeological samples the predominant fuel source was well-humified peat.
