MOD developments led to archaeological investigations on St Kilda. These involved historic building recording of existing MOD structures and the manse, a watching brief, an evaluation and the largest archaeological excavation undertaken on the island. The archaeological remains uncovered included relict agricultural soils, a canalised stream, other structural remains and artefacts. Radiocarbon dates suggest activity is from the middle Iron Age to the thirteenth century AD.
