Tullos Hill Community Excavation

An archaeological excavation on Tullos Hill, Aberdeen was carried out using local volunteers on two sites recorded during a survey in 2004. A cairn with a suspected robber pit in the centre, close to the Scheduled Cat Cairn, was revealed to be a ring-cairn and a cremation was recovered as were a number of lithics.


A possible roundhouse on the northern slopes of the hill was shown to have an eroded perimeter bank with facing stones surviving. An internal drain was recorded but no clear post-holes were present in the bioturbated interior. Lithics and a single pot sherd were recovered.

Cairn: NJ 9521 0323, Hut-Circle: NJ 9510 0346
