The dramatic Mull of Galloway has long been an enigmatic location. There is archaeological evidence of human activity there from the Neolithic onwards, but the site has long been noted for the presence of the system of defensive earthworks that form what may be the largest Iron Age enclosure in Scotland. Despite this, little is known about the origins or purpose of the site in prehistory.
In November, as part of Archaeology Month, AOC Archaeology undertook a survey of the Mull. Unfortunately, due to the restrictions, we were unable to get volunteers involved on site – but you can now see what was involved! At our first Rhins Revealed webinar Dr.Graeme Cavers outlines the archaeology of the Mull, got us ‘virtually’ involved in the survey, and discussed the significance of the new survey works.
