Archaeology Lecture Series
'Crannogs Through Time: 5000 Years of Island Dwelling in Scotland'
Speaker: Dr Michael J. Stratigos (Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre)
Tuesday 6th August, 7pm (doors open 6.40pm)
Artificial island dwellings known as crannogs are a common feature of lochs the length and breadth of Scotland. There are over 500 recorded crannogs in the country and it is suggested that the true number could easily be more than double that. In addition to being nearly ubiquitous and unusual for their watery location, crannogs are also unique for the very long span of time they are built and used in Scotland spanning the Neolithic to the post-medieval period. This talk will present an overview of the archaeology and history of crannogs from their earliest Neolithic origins to the houses of Iron Age farmers, to the hunting lodges of medieval kings.
