The townships of Barabhas are on the west coast of
the Isle of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides between
the blanket bog of Barabhas Moor to the east, and
machair and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The
Barabhas Machair (centre NB 351 513) has been
eroding for at least a century, and of archaeological
interest for nearly as long. Survey and excavations over
the last 40 years have revealed settlements from the
Early Bronze Age to the present day, in a landscape
that has been used and reused. This paper is the first
of a series presenting the results of this fieldwork, reporting on the results of the surveys and on the
results of initial documentary research, and has been
produced as part of a wider post-excavation project
supported by Historic Environment Scotland.
