Abstract:
Highlighting the meagre evidence for Palaeolithic sites in northern Britain, new research aimed at locating evidence of early humans in Scotland is summarised. The earliest finds so far come from Mesolithic sites at Kinloch Bay, Rhum, and Morton, Fife, dated by radiocarbon and sea level changes. However, some stray finds of Palaeolithic style flint tools have been made and a cave site at Inchnadamph, Assynt, has produced an enigmatic hoard of deer antlers, dated by accelerator methods to the Devensian interglacial. Excavations are now being carried out in a cave on the island of Ulva -- a likely site to yield evidence of early occupation.
