Scottish Crannogs – Adventure Book

Learn about Scottish Crannogs.

Crannogs are a type of ancient loch-dwelling found throughout Scotland. Archaeologists have found the remains of several hundred crannogs. Families built, lived in, and reused crannogs from about 5,000 years ago up until the 1600s.

The Scottish Crannog Centre is a living museum centered around a reconstructed Iron Age Crannog that stands in Loch Tay.

Adventure Book activity sheets showcase the reconstructed Crannog, including ancient objects recovered by underwater archaeology.
