Abstract:
Human remains were discovered by the householder undertaking landscaping for a garage in the garden of his home at Cliff House, Main Street, Benderloch, Argyll (NGR: NM 9051 3799). AOC Archaeology Group thereafter undertook an archaeological excavation and survey under the terms of the Historic Scotland Human Remains Call-off Contract between the 21st and 22nd May, 2007. The landscaping had impacted on a rock shelter located above a raised beach. Inspection of the site revealed that the vast majority of the previously in situ deposits, including midden material, had been disturbed and removed from site. Examination of the remaining in situ soils recovered a small quantity of decorated prehistoric pottery (most likely from a Food Vessel), a single worked bone tool and a small amount of human bone. Extensive quantities of small mammal bones and marine shells were identifiable within the disturbed material. Initial examination of the human bone by Dr Stuart W. McDonald, Glasgow University, indicates the presence of two adults with a single adolescent bone pointing to a third individual.
