Reconstructing the Past: Building a Chambered Cairn at Spittal

During July CAT, John Barber (AOC Archaeology Group) and members of the community helped to build a chambered cairn at Spittal. The overall aim of the project was to relive a community project carried out by our Caithness ancestors almost 6000 years ago!
