Your Tay Your Adventure
Hillforts feature regularly on the landscape of the Ochil and Sidlaw hills and a number have been excavated and studied in the past. Many of those studies were undertaken by Victorian archaeologists, who had no access to carbon dating, but the sites are likely to have been used over a wide time-frame. Though the occupants of each are likely to have been power-brokers within the local area, none straddled the land like those who ruled from Moncreiffe Hill. The stronghold would have been ideal for security and defence, offering commanding views of approach by land or water.
The TayLP will excavate the important sites of Moncreiffe and Moredun Top on Moncreiffe Hill to help uncover the ancient story of this landscape. To catch up on the latest dig action go to our Moncreiffe Hillfort Blog
