What?

Dingwall History Society, supported by the Highland Council, commissioned a consultant to co-ordinate the planning, organising and delivery of an archaeological survey of the Dingwall thing site complex which incorporates the Cromartie Car Park (historically the Hillyard) and the kirkyard of Dingwall Old Parish Church, St Clements. 

The THING Project was the catalyst for the commissioning of the survey.  Prior to this no investigative archaeological work had been carried out.  The survey was informed by recent historical research by David and Sandra MacDonald, Dingwall History Society, and used geophysical techniques to examine the archaeological remains of the thing complex.
