Housebuilder uncovers Iron Age chamber on Lewis

Housebuilder uncovers Iron Age chamber on Lewis


A 2,000-year-old underground chamber has been uncovered during work to build a house on the Isle of Lewis.

The Iron Age soutterrain was revealed during the digging of the foundations for the property in Ness.
Local archaeologists, husband and wife team Chris and Rachel Barrowman, are recording the soutterrain.

Mr Barrowman said theories on the purpose of the stone-lined, flat stone-roofed structures included storing food.

An Update for 2018

I have been away from here for quite some time. There is the possibility of an even longer absence from this blog, as I won't have the same access to the internet that I currently enjoy.

I have been living my life - working, studying, tending to family matters - and doing so as a polytheist. Perhaps I spend less time focussing on my polytheistic path than I have in the past, but it's never far from my mind.

This year will herald big changes: changes that will have an impact on my personal practices, and see a significant shift in focus. 

I am taking a leap of faith into the unknown, but trusting that all will be well.

Wish me luck if you are disposed to do so.
