Abstract:
Further excavation and stabilisation of the stone buildings revealed several thousand bone objects including beads, animal teeth and needles. A large midden deposit contained animal bones, limpet shells, ashes, cracked stones, coarse and very friable potsherds, and various artefacts, including Skail flakes, bone pins and beads. An 'inscribed' slab was found close to the burial of two skeletons. Other finds included vessels of whale bone and stone.
