This report analyses the individual structures and researches the historical and social
background of a clachan settlement, a portion of which was excavated, at Moyveela be-
tween 4 March and 12 April 2008. The five buildings and associated features excavated
represents part of a larger pre-famine clachan settlement likely to have been constructed
by a group of tenant farmers from the Moyveela Estate. The clachan was probably aban-
doned prior to the Great Famine of 1845–49 as it is not depicted on the Ordnance Survey
first edition map.
