Abstract:
Reports the excavation of a post-medieval womens cemetery at St Ronan's church and discusses the evidence that Hebridean women were buried apart from men as late as the eighteenth century. This is supported by Dr Johnston's account of his 1773 journey. Medieval or later traditions of separate burial in both Scotland and Ireland are discussed, suggesting that the practice represents variations in status. Evidence of an eigth-century church is also mentioned.
