Abstract


Discusses excavations which revealed evidence for multiple phases of activity including two burnt mounds, two round-houses, part of a probable ring-groove structure which may be a platform house and a metal-working area, with the main foci on the Late Neolithic, Bronze Age and early medieval periods. There are specialist contributions on: ceramics from all periods in the `Pottery report' by Trevor Cowie (70--5); `Coarse stone artefacts' by Caroline R Wickham-Jones (75--7); `Chipped stone' by Bill Finlayson (77--8); `Stone axehead flake' by Alison Sheridan (78--9); `Cannel coal 'napkin ring'' by Fraser Hunter (79--82); `Burnt and industrial debris' by Irene Cullen (82--3); and `Palynological analysis of burnt mound material' by Ciara Clarke (84--6).
