Literally, artificial islands, whose origins appear to begin in the Iron Age. Most crannogs are found in the Scottish Highlands – for obvious reasons. Crannogs are generally of domestic archaeological interest, being safe places for people to live, with pathways leading to them being just under the water-line, disabling intruders from entering people’s abodes unless they know the exact route. Some crannogs seem to have had ritual enacted on them.
