Iain McHardy

I am Ian McHardy and I have been working as a professional Archaeologist since graduating from Glasgow University in 1999.
I have worked in Scotland, Ireland and Aotearoa/ New Zealand before settling on the Isle of Lewis in 2005.

 Here in Lewis I have been involved in many diverse projects; including directing a project investigating sea stack sites around the coast, directing a community excavation of a wheelhouse in North Uist with local volunteers, supervising excavations on the fortified medieval island of Dun Eistean, leading an Art and Archaeology project for the islands primary schools and even St Kilda Archaeologist in 2010/11.

I also carry out numerous professional developer funded, desk based assessments i.e building surveys, walk over surveys and archaeological evaluations.
