Cromarty: The evolution of a Scottish coastal burgh

As the Cromarty Medieval Burgh Community Archaeology Project comes to an end, four years of excavation and analysis was summarised at a presentation in The Stables today. The event was introduced by Paul Monk, curator of the Cromarty Courthouse Museum with contributions from local historian David Alston and project leaders Steven Birch and Mary Peteranna. Some of the archaeologists and scientists who have studied the artifacts from the site gave their analyses of the metal, glass, ceramic, stone and environmental material found.

Judging from the lively discussion at the end of the presentations, more of Cromarty's past history remains to be discovered and debated.
