Ri Cruin Bronze Age Cairn, Kilmartin Glen, Argyll, Scotland, 15.4.17. This cairn contains two chambers. Image 2 contains contains the decentralised burial chamber whilst image 3 contains the examples of four axe heads carved into the side of the the chamber at the time of construction (one of the axeheads is largely obscured under the leaf litter). Like many of the other cairns in the Kilmartin area, the site has yielded several examples of pottery and other key artefacts.


The reconstructed Iron Age Crannog at The Crannog Centre, Loch Tay, Perthshire, Scotland, 27.7.16. This impressive reconstruction highlights the complexity and sophistication in building such a structure. There are more than 40 crannogs across Scotland and the centre offers a hands-on approach to gaining a better understanding of life during the construction and maintenance of one of these settlements. Well worth a visit!
