A site visit to Kings Seat hill fort near Dunkeld, and this is a hearth where bones and charcoal have dated it to 570AD. The hill fort is on top of a prominent hill, but it was completely overgrown by rhododendrons until local people, with the Perth & Kinross Heritage Trust and AOC Archaeology started to excavate in 2017.  They have found many hearths on the site, indicating that the hillfort was a centre for working bronze, silver and gold.  The number of pieces of c.600AD pottery (E ware) also shows that this was a high-status site as only wealthy people could afford this type of tableware.   School groups have taken part in the dig too and been archaeologists for a day - perhaps a future career for some?
