ARS Ltd has been undertaking archaeological investigations at Tarmac’s Lochinver Quarry since 2012 and we’re already seeing the potential for this site to shed much new light on Bronze Age and Iron Age Scotland. We’ve now added a Projects page for all the exciting updates, so be sure to check it out to learn more about what we’re uncovering (see link, below). You’ll also find a downloadable PDF version of the latest report on this page.
