Addyman Archaeology is well illustrated by Ross Cameron's activities over the last few weeks. Ross is an expert on west coast castles so I hope that working at Mingary has been an enjoyable experience for him.
The archaeologists at Addyman Archaeology are excited about continuing the excavation of the well itself, partly because it may contain deposits that go back through the early history of the castle, but also because they're not sure exactly what it is, a well or a cistern, or how it worked. When they return this week, they'll be back working on it.
Ross was, as always, very patient and generous with his time when he explained all this to me, but I'm quite sure I've got some of it wrong. Any errors are therefore mine, and I apologise for them.
The Mingary Castle restoration blog was written by Jon Haylett, who lives in the local village of Kilchoan. Now that restoration is almost complete Holly and Chris Bull will take over to report on bringing the Castle back to life.
