The Early Christian and later medieval ecclesiastical site at St Blane’s, Kingarth, Bute
Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland,128 (1998), 551-565
A reappraisal of the Early Christian monastic site of St Blane’s, Kingarth, Isle of Bute, began in 1997. Following a week of field survey including geophysical work a limited area was excavated which had previously been investigated in 1896, south-west of the present churchyard, as well as one small cutting adjacent to the south-east corner of the churchyard. The documentary and other evidence for the early monastery is discussed and the results of both episodes of archaeological work – in 1896 and 1997 – are described.
