Sir: I enjoyed the picture of the crannog in Loch Tay ("Bronze Age high-rise comes home to Loch Tay with a house on stilts", 8 August). I believe that at least one of the six volunteers working on the project, "using traditional building methods", may have made a discovery even greater than the scientists analysing the Martian meteorite.

In late May, I spent three days at a hotel less than 100 yards from the crannog. Every so often the peace was broken by the unmistakable sound of a chainsaw being applied to the "natural materials".

Perhaps the Bronze Age should be renamed the Steel and Power Age.
