About this title


The historic peoples and kingdoms of Atlantic Scotland - the Picts, the Scots and the Norse - have their roots in the prehistory of the region. Concentrating on the Later Iron Age, this volume contains essays by archaeologists who summarize their recent research from specific sites in western Scotland, and who link the available material evidence with the later historically documented kingdoms and power structures of the Picts and the Vikings. They discuss questions of regional diversity and development, aspects of the material culture, and also re-evaluate the period as a whole. Traditional structural typological and diffusionist methods are abandoned in favour of new models of development and change.
