People, pottery and the past : images of community archaeology in Argyll

Jackson, Fiona2011
Books
The ruins of Morlaggan lie on a hillside above Loch Long. Their tumbledown walls are typical of those that can be seen beneath the heather and bracken on countless other hills throughout Scotland. The High Morlaggan Project, led by local residents Fiona Jackson and Sue Furness, set out to investigate the history of this deserted rural settlement. Through a combination of documentary research, surveying and excavation, the project has succeeded in discovering much about the buildings and the people who used to live there, while music, drama, art and poetry have all been used to introduce as wide an audience as possible, especially the next generation, to the excitement of their local heritage. Using just a few of the thousands of images captured during the course of the project, this book aims to provide a taste of the thrill, fun and excitement that can be generated by a project with a passion for knowledge about its community's past.
