Beautiful bone needle discovered

Meg found one of the nicest finds from the excavations today- a complete bone needle, in excellent condition.

As we should have expected, things are becoming more complex than initially appeared, and we now seem to have at least three cellular ‘Pictish’ buildings, perhaps all of different date. The plot thickens…

Our post-excavation work is going well too, and Mark found what may be a fragment of crucible in one of the samples from Thrumster broch.

Thanks to everyone for sticking with us during some challenging weather today- the results are worth it though!


Our hardy volunteers dig on despite the inclement weather. What a team!
