Panel marks site of archaeological dig

A new interpretive panel on its handsome plinth marks the site of the 2013-2016 archaeological excavation of medieval Cromarty. Over four summers, local archaeologists Mary Peteranna and Steven Birch supervised volunteers, school children and professional historians as they uncovered, layer by layer, remnants of life in Cromarty dating back to the 13th century.

The informative board is situated on the Reeds path by the 16th-century, stone-built, clay-lined well (with pony bones in the bottom) discovered in the final days of the dig.
