Summary:

NAUST (Viking to Medieval - 790 AD to 1539 AD)

Location:

NB03SW 48 045 338

NB 045 338 In association with an assessment of the two mounds on this peninsula, a survey and small excavation were carried out on the remains of a boat naust on the southern edge of the promontory, in order to date the structure.
Erosion damage was acute, and the excavation of the subsidiary structure built into the eastern edge of the naust revealed no surviving archaeology. The naust itself is believed to be medieval on the basis of structural similarities to the adjacent medieval sea defences.
