Giant's Grave - Trench 3 - Stage 1Your model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Trench 3 – Stage 1 – Trench 3 targeted a suite of high resistance geophysical anomalies around a displaced megalith that has been incorporated into a wall overlying extensive area of cobbling seen in the model. The cobbling was deliberately laid and extends beyond the limits of the trench, probably as dry standing for animal husbandry. It overlaid the remains of the chambered cairn.
2017 was the final season of excavation at the Early Neolithic chambered cairn of Giant’s Grave, Islay, Inner Hebrides by the team from the University of Reading, Bournemouth University and Islay. We are also grateful to the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and Islay Heritage for additional funding and support
