Tim PhillAs


The three counties of mainland northern Scotland (Ross-shire, Sutherland, and Caithness) have some of the most dramatic, varied and isolated landscapes in Britain. And these remarkable settings are matched by their Neolithic and Bronze Age remains.This extensive study contains sections on the monuments and their methods of construction, the research history, the landscape, field methodology, and settlements. As well as its importance to academics, this book will interest all those fascinated by the Scottish past and landscape.
