Crannog site keeps on going!
The remains of a female in her late teens found in the upper layers of the ancient site were not buried in a recognised graveyard or in a traditional manner.

The woman, who was around 18 or 19 years old, is thought to have died in the 15th or 16th Century.

The circumstances of her burial have led experts to wonder if she may have been killed.

"This person wasn't laid out on their back in an east-west direction, which is normal for a Christian burial," excavation director Dr Nora Bermingham explained.

They should bag the whole site!

actually... they should be thankful that the diggers whistle blew on this site in teh first place.

recognition and apologies !!!!
