Shire Archaeology #53: Brochs of Scotland

by

Shire Archaeology #53: Brochs of Scotland Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book examines some of the most spectacular ancient monuments in Britain - the iron age brochs of north and west Scotland. It sets the building of these unique fortifications into context and examines some of the impressive sites that may still be visited, including the brochs of Mousa and Clickhimin in Shetland and Carolway on Lewis. There is a short section on what brochs are not - including 'Pictish' towers. A select gazetteer of some of the most important brochs is followed by a list of museums in which representative artefacts are preserved. There is a short bibliography.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 54-55) and index.
