61. The Shiant Isles Home Page
All about the archaeology, geology, and natural history of the Shiant Isles in North West scotland, in connection with the book 'Sea Room' by Adam Nicolson, the owner of ths Isles.
The Shiants are a small group of islands in the Hebrides, in North West Scotland, four miles or so off the coast of Lewis and 12 from the northern tip of Skye, which lies almost due south of them. They are one of the marvels of the Hebrides and their owner, Adam Nicolson, has recently published a book about them under the title of Sea Room . As he says there, the book is 'an attempt to tell the whole story, as I now understand it, of a tiny place in as many dimensions as possible: geologically, spiritually, botanically, historically, culturally, aesthetically, ornithologically, etymologically, emotionally, politically, socially, archaeologically and personally.' Not everything that has been written or discovered about the islands could be fitted within the covers of the book and so this website works as a kind of annexe, in which anyone who is interested can read further into the background and details of this extraordinary place. Visit professional photographer Charles Tait's website to see more photos of the islands.

64. The Scottish Parliament Excavation
Cannongate, Edinburgh, scotland, by Headland archaeology Ltd and the Scottish Urban Archaeological Trust, funded by Historic scotland.
Home Background The Main Excavation Queensberry House ... Contact Welcome to the The Holyrood Archaeology Project The project has been set up to investigate the future Scottish Parliament site in Edinburgh. Once part of the medieval burgh of Canongate, this historic site lies at the east end of the Royal Mile, which links Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyrood house, official Scottish residence of the Queen. It is Scottish Office policy to carry out archaeological work before any Government development and, despite the importance of the Scottish Parliament, this site is no exception. The project is managed by Historic Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Office. The project team is a consortium of Edinburgh-based Headland Archaeology Ltd and Perth-based SUAT Ltd. The project began in September 1998 and preliminary investigations confirmed the survival of deep soils of medieval date on part of the site. This project offers an exciting opportunity to study an area that reflects many changes in the fortunes and history of Edinburgh and Scotland. This site has been visited times since 1 January 1999 Click to enlarge

69. Exploring Archaeology In Ross And Cromarty, Scotland
on Scottish archaeology look for the Historic scotland series published by For more information about archaeology in the highlands please contact
MAIN MAP SITES 1-3 SITES 4-6 SITES 7-9 ... SITE 22 EXPLORING ARCHAEOLOGY IN ROSS AND CROMARTY Ross and Cromarty is a county of contrasts, from the fertile farmland of the east to the mountains and crofting townships of the west. People have lived here since the end of the last Ice Age, about 9,000 years ago. The first monuments built in the landscape are burial cairns and henges (circular ritual enclosures), which date from the early Neolithic, about 6000 years ago, as people began to farm and clear the forest. Metalworking, initially in copper and bronze (copper mixed with tin) was introduced about 4,400 years ago. From the Bronze Age also comes evidence of domestic settlement in the form of roundhouses and fields - some of them in areas now too high and cold for cultivation. Iron-working appears in the highlands about 500 BC; and at about the same time new types of site appear - hillforts, duns, and brochs, built to protect local communities and their livestock from attack. By about AD 400 the peoples of northern Scotland were being referred to by Roman writers as 'Picti', ('painted people'). The Picts have left a remarkable legacy of carved stones, especially in Easter Ross, where a sophisticated school of carving developed in the 8th - 10th centuries, with influences from Northumbria, Ireland, and Scandinavia. The Christian religion was brought to Wester Ross by Irish saints such as St Maelrubha who founded a monastery at Applecross in 673 AD, and many early Christian sites have been identified in both Easter and Wester Ross.

Celtic Inscribed Stones Project (CISP)
The Project (CISP) is a joint project of the Department of History and the Institute of Archaeology under the direction of Prof. Wendy Davies in collaboration with Prof. James Graham-Campbell. The project was funded by the Humanities Research Board, the Arts and Humanities Research Board and University College London. The project currently has two research fellows : Kris Lockyear and Mark Handley. CISP is undertaking a collaborative, interdisciplinary study of Medieval Celtic inscriptions. One of its main objectives is the compilation of an accessible, comprehensive and authoritative database of all known inscriptions. By bringing this material together in one place and making it readily available our goal is to turn what is a largely untapped resource into usable material. Additionally, field work has been undertaken by Katherine Forsyth (former Research Fellow), Kris Lockyear, Mark Handley, Paul Kershaw (former Research Fellow), James Graham-Campbell and Wendy Davies on the material from Brittany and the Channel Islands which will lead to a published corpus
The Material
The scope of the project is the Celtic-speaking regions of the early middle ages, (Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Brittany, the Isle of Man, and parts of western England, in the period approximately AD 400-1100). Included are all stone monuments inscribed with text, whether in the Celtic vernacular or Latin, in the Roman alphabet or ogham (but excluding runic inscriptions). This material constitutes primary data of unique evidential value to historians, archaeologists, historical geographers, palaeographers, epigraphers, art historians, medieval Latinists and Celtic linguists.
