Excavation of the cairn revealed a chamber containing disarticulated human bone, Neolithic and Beaker pottery, a stone axe and animal bone. A secondary cist contained a skeleton and two Beaker vessels. Investigation of mounds in the vicinity of a known Viking grave at Reay Links revealed four empty long cists and an unstratified bronze strap end of early medieval date.

Further excavation and stabilisation of the stone buildings revealed several thousand bone objects including beads, animal teeth and needles. A large midden deposit contained animal bones, limpet shells, ashes, cracked stones, coarse and very friable potsherds, and various artefacts, including Skail flakes, bone pins and beads. An 'inscribed' slab was found close to the burial of two skeletons. Other finds included vessels of whale bone and stone.

The discovery of a tree trunk laid on a midden deposit and associated with worked red deer antler on the banks of the river Avon led to a review of land movement within Scotland. The archaeological evidence points to a combination of raising and lowering of levels over time.

The article considers the use of megaliths and large boulders as markers for boundaries and meeting places and the traditions surrounding them in the Loch Lomond area. An incised cross pillar at Suie is thought to be early Christian. In Alloway, the relationship of crosses at Cambusdoon and Blairston with Mungo's Well are considered. A short cist discovered at Ednam contained a crouched skeleton and a worked flint.

A substantial programme of excavation revealed an early Agricolan fort which was succeeded by one of Antonine date. The form of the Antonine fort is described in some detail. Mumrills was the site of one of the praesidia established on the\r\nline of the isthmus by Agricola in AD 80 or 81. The fortified enclosure, which was defended by a wooden palisade and a single ditch, was exceptionally large. The occupation, however, was a short one, covering perhaps not more than a single winter. In or about AD 142 Mumrills was selected as the site of what was, so far as is known, much the largest of the castella on the line of the Antonine Wall. Both then and in the Agricolan period, therefore, it may have been the station of the officer in general command of the frontier. The artefacts are reported on extensively.
