These themes, and the wider context of lake settlement in Europe, were the topic of a seminar session co-convened by AOC’s Anne Crone and Graeme Cavers at the meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists in Glasgow, in September 2015.A New Direction: Black Loch of Myrton The hypotheses and models developed through the Cults Landscape Project were given the opportunity for test in 2013, when AOC were given funding for excavations at the newly-located wetland settlement at Black Loch of Myrton, near Monreith.Post-excavation analysis of the samples from the Black Loch site is on-going, but initial work has demonstrated that the occupation deposits are very rich, with insect remains indicating the stabling of animals and some evidence for differentiation of activities within the houses.
The excavations at Dorman’s Island crannog are reported in the Journal Of Wetland Archaeology, volume 10, 2011.
Many of the themes of the SWAP programme are discussed in papers by Anne Crone and Graeme Cavers in Lake Dwellings After Munro: read the volume online for free, here.
Alongside the work on the Cults crannog, excavations were carried out on a promontory fort on the opposite side of the loch and at a ditched and palisaded enclosure to the northeast.
Although much less well preserved, these sites provided evidence for settlement and agriculture before, contemporary with and after the excavated crannog.
In 2006, following the Edinburgh meeting of the Wetland Archaeology Research Programme (WARP), Historic Scotland commissioned a review of the archaeology of Scotland’s wetlands.
