For the last two years UAB researchers and archaeology students have spent their summers excavating the site of Camas Daraich, one of the best preserved Mesolithic settlements in Scotland. The research aims to gain new perspectives on the peopling of the north west at a time when Britain was still a part of continental Europe. This year the project also found evidence that may correlate with the prehistoric Storegga tsunami. If confirmed, this would be the first time that this phenomenon has been documented on the west coast of the United Kingdom, and so far from the epicentre.
