I don't know whether the archaeologists themselves would have preferred it busier - presumably that varies as some were happy to chat and explain what they were doing whereas others seemed to prefer to just get on with their experiements in 'bringing the past to life'.
Anyway, it was a great event and I'd highly recomment to people that they should attend events like this if they get the chance.
They build a post circle in the grounds of Brodick Castle, below Goatfell. I hadn't realised previously, but these would have been very common around Scotland at one time, and in fact there is apparently evidence of post circles on Machrie Moor, presumably predating the well-known stone circles there.
The post circle, the first to be erected in Arran for over 4000 years.
The circle with Goatfell towering over it. Later in the weekend it would be set alight...
