Today we were incredibly fortunate to have a visit by Ed Martin, en route from Sutherland, to take some aerial photographs of the dig today.  He uses a remotely controlled hexacopter to produce overhead photographs from the air...luckily the conditions on site were suitable for Ed!

We were also pleased to welcome the Highland Council archaeologists on site today, along with Val Sweeney from the Inverness Courier and archaeologists from the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS).

In the excavations, each of the supervisors continued to focus their efforts in various parts of the site; alongside our volunteers we are identifying remains of the Medieval burgh, which appear to survive incredibly well below the Post Medieval settlement remains.  Particularly the Medieval walling on the shoreline definitely continues into Reeds Park.

We joined you on Tuesday the 6th and had such a good time. You let us do some washing and the kids and myself learned so much. We'll be back in the future to help you uncover more amazing finds. Myself, Iain, Alice and in particular Andrew would like to thank you for having us and taking the time to explain about the things you've found. All the best. Kat Clayton and 3 very interested and happy children x
