An Eroding Sandscape
During the later years of the British Iron Age, at least 1600 years ago, a young woman was buried at Barvas, on the west side of the Isle of Lewis. Her body was discovered by the archaeologist, Dr Mary Macleod Rivett, in 2001. Research based on this significant find and on many aspects of the machair - the sandy soil that is constantly eroding and evolving - will be the subject of a book - Barabhas Machair: Surveys of an Eroding Sandscape - to be published later in the year.
