The Black Spout and the Perthshire Homesteads

The Black Spout and the Perthshire Homesteads. 12 June 2008. A presentation, by David Strachan of Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust, on the Trust’s ongoing excavations at the Black Spout homestead, Pitlochry.

Please note that finds from the site, including quern stones, loom weights and a glass bead, or toggle, made from re-used Roman glass, are on display throughout the month at Perth Museum (see events) and that the fourth season of excavations (see events) offers a rare opportunity to see archaeologists at work and hear them explain the process and all the latest discoveries!
