The North of Scotland Archaeological Society
is pleased to announce the publication of
- The History and Archaeology of a Northeast Highland Glen
Take a journey through this beautiful and little known glen and discover its historical and archaeological secrets. The glen is reputed to have been one of the most densely populated in Ross-shire – why was this? How did the people survive? What was the fate of this “super abundant” population? This book tells the story of the glen at a time of great upheaval and controversial change, relating it to the archaeological sites discovered and recorded during a 3 year project.
“The result of an ambitious project to survey Strathconon, a glen into which few archaeologists had trodden, is this magnificent volume, where history, archaeology and ethnography are drawn together into a fascinating overview of the glen, its landscape, environment, and its people”
Professor Richard Oram, University of Stirling
“From the end of the 18th century when whisky was a high value, albeit illicit, product through the privations of the 19th century and into the beginning of the 20th century, the life of the people is vividly brought to life”. Anne Coombs NOSAS Chair
