Recent developments in the study of the Galloway Iron Age, and excavations at Black Loch of Myrton

Recent discoveries have been changing the way archaeologists view the Iron Age in south-west Scotland. Following a major campaign of research at Cults Loch near Stranraer and the excavation of what may be a very well preserved loch-side village at Black Loch of Myrton, our picture of society in the first millennium BC is changing. This lecture will present some of the results of this new work, and discuss the implications for Iron Age archaeology in Scotland more generally.

All welcome — small admission charge for non-members of KHS.
