Had a fantastic day at the Medieval Cromarty seminar today! Lots of interesting speakers including our own Steven Birgh introducing the excavations... Our guest speakers discussed a range of topics: Prof Richard Oram spoke about pre-burgh settlement, David Alston presented useful documentary evidence about the development of the town, John Barret talked through the formation of a typical medieval burgh and Derek Hall presented on the results of pottery analysis and its implications for the site interpretation.

A great turn-out for a sunny Saturday with over 45 people attending the day. Lots of discussion, new theories and ideas to go away and mull over before our 2015 season starts in the end of June. Visit our website to see when we'll be on site and for information on visiting and volunteering!
