Excavations at Inverlochy Castle, Inverness-shire, 1983-95

Excavations were carried out at several points around the late 13th-century Inverlochy Castle between 1983 and 1995. In 1983 the interior of the north-east tower and the area immediately outside its entrance were excavated; and part of what is believed to be an 18th-century building was uncovered against the outside face of the north curtain wall. In 1989 the interior of the south-west tower and the adjacent part of the courtyard were investigated. Exploratory trenching outside the south curtain wall in 1994 explored the relationship between a putative barbican and a stone-revetted terrace, perhaps a gun platform. Excavation at the north end of the courtyard in 1995 revealed traces of a building set against the north curtain wall and, within the north-west corner, a single human skeleton. The project was funded by Historic Scotland and its predecessor department, Historic Buildings & Monuments.

    Yeah. In this blog, at least the commentators are normal .. And then they usually write in the comments all sorts of nonsense.

    You are wrong. I can prove it.

  3. Sisyphus

    I think, what is it excellent idea.

  4. Al-Fahl

    Of course, I beg your pardon, there is a proposal to take a different path.

    We must be optimistic.

    In my opinion you are mistaken. Write to me in PM, we will talk.
