Abstract


Gorten Bay is traditionally the site of two battles, one between the Scots and the Scandinavians and one 'later'. A variety of artefacts have been recovered including Viking clinch nails and glass, medieval weapons and a coin of Edward I. Later finds include a coin of Charles II and musket balls and these may hint at a third skirmish.
