Boat Burial Comes to Light

Sanna Bay (above) is on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. This is the most westerly part of the Scottish mainland and certainly has an island feel. The Vikings must have sensed something special for they involved themselves with an elaborate boat burial that has only just come to light. Take a look at what the archaelogists have pieced together about the life, and death, customs of these people who were here over a thousand years ago and certainly did not disappear without trace.
