Discovering Bute’s Archaeology – a view from a Scottish island 12.30pm

Swimming done and a useful trip – bumped into one of our regular crew in the local butchers who is doing a distance learning degree in archaeology: promised him to get his excavation forms back to him ASAP (oops!)

Quick bite of lunch and then a pleasant half hour in the sunshine talking lithics with the specialist who is looking at the material we recovered from last years excavations at Scalpsie Barrow. A great excavation and one of my favourite spots on the island.  You can see more about that and all the other Discover Bute activities at
