bayanne house archaeology


The Tafts of Bayanne have been known as an ancient settlement for many years but only between 1995 and 1997 has formal archaeological work been carried out. During the excavation period a large number of finds lead the digging team to believe that this site may well date from at least the Middle Bronze Age and was occupied into the Early Historic period.



The final report is now available, and appears in a book published by Historic Scotland, called Ebbing Shores The site has also been scheduled. A small number of artefacts can be seen together with photographs at Bayanne. The site itself is easily accessible and can be examined at first hand.
