Excavation of a post-medieval settlement at Druim nan Dearcag, and related sites around Loch Olabhat, North Uist

By Ian Armit


NoThe loch-side settlement of Druim nan Dearcag has been shown by excavation to date to the\ud 16th-17th centuries AD, when it formed part of a dispersed settlement pattern in north-west North\ud Uist. Elements of this settlement system were subsequently truncated by ridge-and-furrow cultivation\ud associated with the cleared township or 'baile' of Foshigarry. The site produced rare structural and\ud artefactual evidence for this period of Hebridean history and may help shed some light on the\ud development of settlement patterns, house types and land use in the late medieval and post-medieval\ud periods
