Un­earthing se­crets at Tar­bert’s royal cas­tle

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Tar­bert Cas­tle Trust is get­ting down and dirty as it hosts a week­end ar­chae­o­log­i­cal dig.

On Saturday June 30 and Sunday July 1, be­tween 10am-4pm, a team will be in­ves­ti­gat­ing ground pat­terns for any ev­i­dence of the oc­cu­pa­tion of the area out­side the cas­tle walls.

Robert McPhail, trust sec­re­tary and trea­surer, said: ‘Ide­ally, we need help proba-- bly for the full day or a least a morn­ing or af­ter­noon ses­sion dur­ing the two days. You will, of course, be wel­come any time for a look and ev­ery­one will be in­formed of out­comes. This is a good op­por­tu­nity to learn some skills which will help with next year's big dig in May and June.'
