T105 from Craggan Crannog.

A new wiggle-match date for Craggan crannog is hot off the AMS!

This new wiggle-match comes from T105, a relatively small diameter oak horizontal timber from the top of the crannog. Exactly what this type of feature relates to is difficult to say, especially without more extensive excavation. What we can say is that this timber was cut down, and therefore probably incorporated in the crannog structure, sometime between 395–360 cal BC.

This continues to build the case that we are looking at a lot of crannog-building going on between 400–350 cal BC!

Further wiggle-match dates from Craggan crannog and other crannogs we looked at in 2018 should be finished soon!
