Abstract:
The distribution of known timber-palisaded sites is concentrated in the Tyne-Forth area of N Britain. Single-family homesteads and multiple-family settlements are represented, and a tendency is apparent towards chronological separation of the two, whereby settlements predominate between the 7th and 4th centuries BC and homesteads predominate between the 4th and 2nd centuries. Paucity of associated artefacts will not allow estimation of the cultural context of northern palisades, and there is no convincing evidence of a continental origin for the type of site. Palisades represent the earliest form of non-defensive enclosed site in N Britain, and their adoption reflects the development of widespread permanent settlement. Appendix lists palisades throughout Britain. Some points in this paper relating to the Hownam Culture are taken up in the same volume by E W MacKie, pp 68-72. AR(Au)
