ASSYNT FIRE AND WATER: An investigation of prehistoric life at Stronechrubie, Assynt
3rd – 10th October 2012

Welcome to the home page of the Assynt Fire and Water Project, an exciting new investigation of prehistoric archaeology in the north Highlands of Scotland. Building on the success of previous public archaeology projects, Historic Assynt conducted the excavation of a burnt mound at Stronechrubie. Excavation was led by archaeologists from AOC Archaeology Group, who provided on-site training for volunteers, conducted a programme of experimental archaeology and ran a series of finds roadshows. In addition, in February a smaller excavation was conducted at the possible moated site at nearby Inchnadamph.  For more information on both of these excavations please see the events page, and for updates on project findings check out the Dig Diary.
