Description - The Archaeology of Skye and the Western Isles by Ian Armit
The study of the archaeology of Skye and the Western Isles has been transformed in recent years through the results of new excavations, surveys and reassessment of earlier work. Setting the Hebrides alongside better-known regions of Britain, this book brings out the key features of Hebridean archaeology, from the impressive Callanish stones and the great ritual monuments of the Neolithic, the broch towers and wheelhouses of the Iron Age, to the arrival of the Norse, and the Lords of the Isles. The book also explores the history of human settlement and society in these islands, from the first hunter-gatherers to the Clearances.
