Bennachie Dig

August 2022

The excavations are taking place on what appears to be a late medieval building located on top of an apparent Neolithic/Bronze Age mound. The most exciting find last year was a possible Neolithic incised stone with concentric circles, photos are of finds found on this years dig.

Pottery / earthenware has been found as well as the stone structure which was highlighted in the LiDAR survey

It is hoped that some artifacts found at the site will be displayed at the Bennachie Visitors Centre later this year.

The Bailies would like to thank MacDonald Hotels for permission to carry out these excavations.
