Living on Water Project

The Centre is presently involved with the Living On Water project, which aims to develop a social history of Loch Tay focusing on the dating of early Iron Age crannogs preserved there.

Using state of the art scientific technology combined with traditional archaeological investigations, timber samples from several crannogs will be collected and examined for radiocarbon and tree-ring dating. Organic samples will also be gathered and analysed for evidence about Loch Tay's early Iron Age environment and the diet and lifestyle of the ancient loch-dwellers.

The project brings together a team of archaeologists and archaeological scientists from the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre at the University of Glasgow, the Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology (SC081418) and the Scottish Crannog Centre, the Universities of Bradford and Nottingham Trent, and AOC Archaeology Ltd. The project is being funded by Historic Environment Scotland.
