The ubiquitous sand layer which forms the main deposit associated with the event is shown to exhibit a consistent morphology and a particle size profile marked by fining-upwards sequences.

An analysis of new and previously published radiocarbon dates indicates that from evidence in the United Kingdom, the event took place sometime around 7100 radiocarbon years BP (7900 calibrated years BP).

Historically part of Angus, the city developed into a burgh in the late 12th century and established itself as an important east coast trading port.

This, along with its other major industries gave Dundee its epithet as the city of "jute, jam and journalism".

As well as being entertaining and even powerful, our building and burning also serve another role – experimental archaeology – to try to help explain some of the evidence for fires and burning of wooden buildings, monuments and pyres that we find in the archaeological record.

What can you expect in the 2017 Burning the circle festival?

Located in the grounds of Brodick Castle, the festival centres of two amazing replica prehistoric structures – a timber roundhouse built by Thistle Campers and which is run by the team of NTS rangers for educational events, and a circle of wooden posts up on the hill behind the castle with stunning views over Brodick and the Firth of Clyde.

These wooden structures are both based on prehistoric archaeology around Machrie Moor, on the west coast of Arran. The basic premise is that we believe that big fires are a great way to help people understand aspects of what it was like to be alive in the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age periods (4000 – 2000BC) when timber houses and circles were commonplace, and were often burned down by accident or design.
