This text provides a full overview of the archaeology of the Vikings in Scotland, incorporating many results from fieldwork and excavation. This work has necessitated a thorough re-appraisal of our knowledge of the process, nature and extent of Scandinavian settlement in Scotland. Concentrating on the Viking and Late Norse periods which span the 8th-to-13th centuries in northern and western Scotland, the chronological range allows for the Norse impact to be placed in its wider context, commencing with the native background. The scope of the book should enable Scotland, archaeologically one of the best documented areas of the Viking world, to be placed in the overall context of the period in Europe. Fully illustrated with over 90 photographs, figures and distribution maps, this book should be accessible to students and teachers of the Viking Age, and the archaeology and history of Scotland, as well as to the general reader.
