Abstract


A clearance excavation in an L-shaped tower-house prior to masonry consolidation was undertaken to attempt to examine and interpret the entrance into the tower. Extensive stone-robbing frustrated this aim, but a stone-lined chamber cut into the bedrock beneath the floor of the main cellar was found. The function of this chamber remains uncertain. MH
