Continuity and discontinuity are considered as functions of the evolution of culture, with particular reference to Late Neo transformations (Battle Axe Culture and Bell Beaker problems). Historic elements cannot be overlooked.

Reviews evidence for change from first human settlement to c 3000 bc; considers extent to which hunter-gatherers influenced broad-, as opposed to small-scale change in palaeofloras; how far charcoal may indicate the intentional use of fire; hazel/bog myrtle identification problems; transition to agriculture. Man's role in landscape change remains uncertain.

?Iron Age skeletons at top of mound; cist with cremation. Long before that, Beaker sherds were placed in pit by old mound. Beneath mound, many sherds, cremated bones, and flints in thick black layer. Pollen, soil, and 14C dates indicate early Neo agriculture by people with Grimston/Lyles Hill wares.

Complex multi-period site. Spiral-decorated stones, large circular chambered tomb of mid-3rd millennium, demolished for small structure (Grooved Ware) then abandoned until large Iron Age round house built over cairn. Critical examination of many recent Orkney publications in the light of this evidence, and some new approaches suggested. 14C dates and environmental evidence.

Three cup-ended ornaments, five penannular armlets, and a corrugated band; 8th-7th century. This is Scotland's largest surviving LBA gold hoard.

Attempted classification of 180 groups of hut circles (comprising over 700 individual structures), with attention to siting, size, entrance and group orientation. Field systems also studied.

An agricultural rather than a funerary explanation is sought for the small groups of cairns in Dumfries-Galloway, which appear to span the Sub-Boreal and Sub-Atlantic (3200 into 1st millennium BC).
Lesley Macinnes
235 - 249
Challenges the view of lowland brochs as 'imported' by N Scottish mercenaries and destroyed in the Roman advance. Seen in their local context they appear as a natural development and an architectural expression of wealth in a complex Roman-native interrelationship.

Argues that certain symbols originated in late 4th/early 5th century, and that some stem from Roman influence. Special reference to Norrie's Law (Fife) hoard: not late 7th but 5th century?

Evidence is found of strong debt to RB and AS England in Pictish culture as represented by objects shown on Pictish stones (chariot, armour, weapons, horsemen, musical instruments, etc).

A typical northern motte had a timber hall on the summit, two phases of palisade, surrounding ditch and approach causeway. The 13th century landscape was reconstructed using geomorphology and air photography. Coins, pottery of c 1250 to early 14th. Three furnaces/ovens were set on reused millstones. Metalwork, animal bones, pottery, palaeobotany.

Evidence for intense occupation, 12th-16th century; a ?mason's lodge was cleared for infirmary buildings, itself abandoned by end 15th for fresh rebuilding. Pottery, petrology.

Revises W I Macadam (1887), but concentrates on excavations at Red Smiddy, Glenkinglass, Tarrioch, and Bonawe. No evidence for ordnance at Red Smiddy; at Glenkinglass the blowing house had been river-eroded but the rest was fully excavated, while at Bonawe there was 19th century reorganization of mid-18th century works (blowing engine blocks intact).
