Abstract:
Two ten-day excavations were held at the Applecross Broch site in April and September 2007. The excavations consisted of a programme of community led archaeological investigation and site presentation works, its purpose to identify and record key aspects of the broch site that could not be addressed during the Time Team visit in April of 2005, creating a conserved, interpreted monument for the public to visit. Following a previous season in 2006, the first excavation of 2007 saw the continuation of investigation to two opposing quadrants that had been opened over the circuit of the broch. A rectangular possible work surface was investigated within the broch centre, and during the September stint, the entrance passageway of a souterrain was uncovered. Also discovered during the latter excavation of 2007 were two similarly incised stones. Extensions were also made to trenches from previous seasons, as well as two 2m x 2m trenches in preparation of the relocation of the electricity pole from within the broch centre.
