From Neolithic monuments to the high-status of Dunadd, the region of Argyll has a rich and varied archaeological history. In this, the first account of Argyll's archaeology written for a general audience, a team of specialists traces the history of the area through its monuments. The scene is set in environmental terms for the arrival of people first as hunters and foragers, and later as farmers. Mesolithic Argyll, the Neolithic period, Bronze Age rituals and the impact of the Scots are examined with descriptions of relevant monuments and recent finds. The book ends with a detailed look at early Christian activity and the arrival of the Norse in Argyll. Fully illustrated with a complementary range of photographs and drawings and written with the non-specialist in mind, this is a much-needed guide to a remarkable area.
