Ewan has sent a great photograph which highlights even more metalworking evidence from the site. These sherds of crucibles (little clay vessels for melting material like copper) were found in the destruction material from the outer ditch. Mike B's eagle eye picked them out, as fresh from the ground they looked like bits of burnt stone. Meggen's talk at the Chester Archaeological Society went well the other night - lots of people seem to now be planning to visit The Craw Stane on their holidays!
