Archaeology of Caithness Ice Age - about 11,000 years ago.
Although the ice sheets did not reach Caithness it would have been an Arctic wilderness. 8,300 BC - Post Glacial (Flandrian)
The temperature has started to rise and the weather is warmer and drier. Plants have become established. 7,000 BC
There is evidence of people living in Caithness and Sutherland at this time. It is thought that there were about 80 people in Scotland at this time and probably 20 of them were living in this area. The people were wanderers and hunter/gatherers. Things stayed much the same for the next 3000 years. During this period, Scotland became covered in trees. Move on in time? Click here!

Story dated: Thursday, April 21, 2005 Historic Scotland have dismissed claims that Maeshowe , one of the jewels of Orkney's World Heritage Site , is to have its roof replaced. However, a spokesman from Historic Scotland stressed this week that this information was incorrect and that there were no plans to alter the structure of Maeshowe. According to one of the many Maeshowe visitors on Sunday, taking advantage of Historic Scotland's annual free weekend, the guide said that the extensive work, which was to be funded by central government, was to counteract ongoing problems with water leaking from the roof into the central chamber.

From the site: "The National Committee on Carved Stones in Scotland was formed in 1993 to co-ordinate responses to the threats of damage and destruction faced by Scotland's carved stones from the weather and other natural and human causes. It is an independent body composed of Representative Members from Scottish national organisations, plus a Chairperson, and up to three co-opted Individual Members. The NCCSS aims to raise awareness of the threats to Scottish carved stones of all periods, to promote their understanding and appreciation, and to encourage a common approach to their recording, publication and preservation."

  • Q -1 How important are Scottish Building Materials? A To undertake effective conservation work it is critical that properly trained craftsmen have appropriate traditional building materials at their disposal. Through an integrated approach, Historic Scotland aims to encourage industry, and the education and training providers, to achieve this objective.
    Historic Scotland has been undertaking research on a range of issues associated with the need to ensure that traditional materials are made available. This research has been carried out against a background of: a decline (or total absence) in the availability of traditional materials such as Scottish slate, stone and lime; a decline in the understanding of the geology of materials used; a lack of availability of craftspeople capable of using traditional materials; a high level of foreign imports; and the adoption of inappropriate modern and synthetic materials.

    General Introduction to the Newstead Research Project
    The Newstead Research Project is investigating the region surrounding the Roman fort of Trimontium near Newstead, on the River Tweed in the Borders region of southern Scotland. Field research has concentrated both on the Roman military complex of Trimontium itself and on the Iron Age settlement sites in the surrounding region. Trimontium was one of the most important Roman centres of the northern frontier in Britain, and was occupied from the late first century AD through the second. It was extensively excavated in the early years of the twentieth century, producing an outstanding collection of Roman artefacts, from humble wooden tent pegs to highly decorated military parade helmets, all now in the National Museums of Scotland in Edinburgh ( Curle 1911 ). The surrounding region is among the most fertile areas for arable farming in modern Scotland. Its importance seems to have been similar in antiquity, with one of the two biggest of Scotland's hillforts, Eildon Hill North, lying very near Trimontium, and some 150 settlement sites known in the 25 x 25 km area of the Research Project's survey region.

    tel/fax: email: John Kenny playing the carnyx. Deskford Carnyx watercolour of carnyx c.1867 keystone with carnyx, Palazz di Conservatori, Rome About The Carnyx The Carnyx was a long Celtic trumpet made of beaten bronze and held vertically so that the sound travels from more than three metres above the ground. It was known through much of Europe from about 200BC to 200AD and was widely depicted - notably on the Gundestrup bowl which shows three carnyces being played simultaneously. The best surviving part of a carnyx was found in North East Scotland and exhibits local design elements. The end of the instrument is in the form of a wild boar's head, and it has a movable tongue and lower jaw. The craftsmanship is superb. The reconstruction was co-ordinated by myself as musicologist, made by John Creed , with archaeological advice from Fraser Hunter , and in consultation with John Kenny . It was funded jointly by a Glenfiddich Living Scotland award and by the National Museums of Scotland, who own both the original artifact and the reconstruction.
