Kinord Excavation bnm5678jhp 
 Old Kinord hut circles houses wall excavation trench digging archaeology Grampian Scotland an excavation with a renewed investigation and assessment of previous excavations undertaken at this area around the shores of Loch Kinord and Davan by Aberdeenshire Council, Edinburgh and Reading Universities in the October of 2016. A prehistoric site of round houses or hut circles and souterrains [earth houses], buried stone lined chambers used for food storage and associated with settled occupation around an adjacent field system with additional food sourced from the lochs. There is a crannog in Loch Kinord. Generally dating from 2nd century BC through to 3rd Century AD little in the way of artefacts has ever been found. However these are substantial structures and a new one was identified in addition to those originally identified and modern techniques such as drone have allowed a more accurate overview of the area to be made and further modern soil and plant life analysis has added to the overall knowledge of the site and this period of manís early Deeside history. Nearby is of course the very spectacular Bronze Age hilltop Recumbent Stone Circle at Tomnaverie excavated and partially restored by Reading University over two seasons in 1999 and 2000.
