Camuscross anchor

Our first stop this morning was at Camuscross to visit Graeme MacKenzie, a local man who discovered an anchor in his own croft while digging a drain. Here Graeme demonstrates the location and orientation of the anchor when he first noticed it. Interestingly the anchor was standing upright and it looks like the head of the anchor was embedded in gravel deposits below the peat. This might suggest that the peat had formed over the anchor after it was put in position and this might help us to date it.
