Celtic Fortifications by Ian Ralston
Book DescriptionFrom northern Scotland to southern Iberia the enclosures around hill- and promontory-forts are the most conspicuous component of the Iron Age archaeological record. Ian Ralston looks at their construction and reconstruction and at the architecture of banks, walls, ramparts and ditches, gateways and ancillary features. He examines the placing of these fortifications in the landscape and their effectiveness as hill-fort defences in war. He also considers these enclosures as signs and symbols. The work is completed with a selective gazetteer.

Neolithic of Mainland Scotland, Paperback (March 2016)
What was life like in Scotland between 4000 and 2000 BC? Where were people living? Why did they spend so much time building extravagant ritual monuments? This volume presents fresh research and radical new interpretations of the pits, postholes, ditches, rubbish clumps, human remains and broken potsherds left behind by our Neolithic forebears.
Celts of Iron Age Europe, Paperback (May 2011)
