[NR 518798]. Reports excavations of two camps, G1 and G2, on a lagoon-side close to thc washing limit of the highest post-glacial transgression. G1 yielded 189 microliths of an industry similar to Lussa Bay's but minus the tanged point. The 239 microliths from G2 followed immediately in typological terms. Also at G2 were two Neo leaf arrowheads. Two 14C dates were obtained, in late 4th and late 3rd millennium bc respectively.

NT 289390. Report on the excavation of the cist is accompanied by a list of all 98 known British Beaker/Bronze Age multiple cremation deposits, i.e. those representing pre-consignment collections of the remains of more than one individual. The conclusion of a wide-ranging discussion is that even a simple cist may house the remains of a long series of human acts.

HY 763514. The first complete catalogue of the finds also assesses the general significance of the site. Contrary to the excavator's view, all finds must be regarded as unstratified; nonetheless the rich collection of bone and stonework, pottery and metalwork warrants study in its own right. The date range appears to be late 1st century BC to late 8th AD. The bone sample was inadequate for proper assessment of the economy.

NY 304901. Instead of the non-defensive stone enclosures of Tyne-Forth, E Dumfriesshire appears to have had embanked enclosures with interior scooping and timber houses. Their assumed medieval date has been disproved by excavation at Boonies, a 0.07ha settlement with a TPQ of late 1st century AD. Within the enclosure were the ring-trenches of 13 round houses, mostly occupied only one at a time, but in the end five houses co-existed and one had encroached on the bank area.

Nearly 40 Scottish examples are catalogued and discussed. Their distribution is more maritime than in England, and only three of the English types are represented. Thenceforward the Scottish development divides into hogbacks with end-beasts, and those with tegulation but otherwise plain which in time evolve into the coped grave-covers of the Romanesque.

Excavation in the transept of St Nicholas' Church suggests that the original building dates from 1153-57 and not, as previously claimed, to 11th century. Evidence for medieval modifications is described, and there is an architectural and an archaeological account of the pre- and post-Reformation features of the building. The archaeology of the church is shown to have a bearing on the history and growth of the medieval city. R K M

A 50mm lead disc, decorated on one side with trumpet-spirals, came from below a complex of Norse houses and is provisionally identified as a casting-pattern and discussed in relation to the two-piece brooch moulds from Birsay with their innovatory pouring-gates.
