Untouched Iron Age broch discovered

The dating of twigs possibly used for woven mats points to the Assynt site remaining unaltered until it collapsed.
The broch at Clachtoll was built using stones weighing up to 100kg each.
Archaeologists involved in a community project called Life and Death in Assynt’s Past had expected the burnt wood to date from AD 300 to AD 1000, during the building’s final phase of occupation.
