Oyne 2013

Oyne primary school community landscape project
Oyne school community project has revealed evidence of oyne's medieval development. sherds of
13th/14th century pottery appear to demonstrate firmly the existence of a castle and/or settlement on
old hart hill at that time. the study of the distribution of standing stones, cairn and a stone circle in
oyne parish has revealed the survival of a boundary that appears to have been in use since at least the
end of the 12th century. it was used at that time to divide oyne into two smaller lordships. one portion
was retained by earl david whilst the western part was enfeoffed to hugh de Boiville. whether the
boundary preceded that date and was simply re-used is, at present, unknown.
