There is growing archaeological evidence that the area around Rhynie was an important high-status centre. Excavations have uncovered fragments of amphorae originating in the Roman eastern Mediterranean, indicating trading links with the Byzantine world. This type of pottery is very particularly in eastern Scotland. Radio carbon dating suggests that the site was constructed c. 450-550 AD.
