Abstract:
Monitoring and excavation during the development of a new business park in Dornoch in 1997 revealed numerous features including a building, ditched enclosures and several hearths, all sealed beneath an artefact-rich cultivation soil. Radiocarbon dates obtained place the main period of activity here in the late first millennium AD. The evidence record also suggests a tradition of ironworking here form the early medieval period continuing through into the medieval period. A small assemblage of finds was recovered from the excavation including quantities of iron slag, bog iron ore , fragments from a clay-lined furnace, whale bone, a bone counter and a bone pin beater. Reports on the results of the work and includes an extended section on the analysis of the iron-making and iron-working evidence.
