Visiting Crannog Centre, Kenmore

Visiting Crannog Centre, Kenmore, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on experimental Iron-Age archaeology as performed at the Crannog Centre on Scotland’s Loch Tay in Perthshire.

The Crannog is  a recreated loch dwelling from about 2500 years ago using information obtained by underwater archaeology from the remains of such a dwelling on the opposite side of Loch Tay.

At the Crannog Centre is it possible to witness (and participate in) ancient skills such as wood working, corn grinding and fire making much as they would have been undertaken by our ancestors.

The people of the Crannog era appear to have enjoyed a relatively peaceful and healthy existence by the standards of the day.
