Evidence provided by grave-groups, hoards, metal analyses and correlations with stone moulds is used in conjunction with typology and distribution to establish a sequence of three industrial phases. Local production of metalwork began in the 18th century BC, and the first real industrial phase, Migdale, includes broad- and thin-butted flat axes, riveted flat knives, tanged daggers, spiral armlets and tubular beads, using Scottish or Irish ore-sources. The Colleonard phase in the 17th and early 16th centuries is characterised by the production of thin-butted axes, riveted knives, halberds, bar armlets and awls. Goldwork in the form of pommel-mounts, ear-rings and lunulae is attributed primarily to this phase. Flanged axes, spearheads and new forms of knife appear in the later 16th and 15th centuries during the Gavel Moss phase. A R

NS 515723. The flrst Antonine Wall distance-slab to be discovered for over a century was ploughed up at Cleddans Farm, between Castlehill and Duntocher. Skilfully carved, it shows an architectural façade in three bays containing ?Britannia and a standard-bearer flanked by defeated Caledonians. The inscription records the building of 3000 Roman feet of wall by the Twentieth Legion. The find-spots of slabs now suggest that each length of wall was marked by four slabs, not two; and the unweathered condition of this one suggests its concealment well before 185.

[NN 5629]. Lix is typical of the late 18th and early 19th century settlement pattern in the SE Highlands, consisting of scattered clusters, or clachans, of up to eight rectangular buildings. Using documentary evidence, field survey and excavation, the morphological arrangement of the settlement was established in some detail, showing that two successive transformations had taken place. Three group-tenancy farms evolved from the old clachans soon after 1780; at Middle and West Lix, further amalgamation and depopulation took place in the mid-19th century, but at East Lix the joint-tenancy farm was replaced by small-holdings before the process of consolidation began about 1830. Excavation of a typical byre-dwelling provided detailed information about interiors in the early 19th century. A R
