Report on the excavation of two subterranean dwellings. The main structure at Garry lochdrach measured 25 feet in diameter and was enclosed by a substantial wall. It contained a series of seven radial piers or divisional walls spaced at fairly regular intervals around a central chamber filled by peat ash. The roof was comprised of stone slabs. A small circular structure was located immediately to the north. The earth-house at Bac Mhic Connain consisted of two circular chambers, with two smaller quadrangular compartments between them, while to the north-east and south-east of the eastern one were the remains of buildings of indefinite character. Find included pottery, worked bone, iron and many worked stone objects. An Ogham inscription was identified on a bone knife handle and evidence of metalworking was recovered.

Notes on miscellaneous objects from Shetland including axes, adzes, 'Shetland knives', flint arrowheads, a soapstone dish, a club-like implement and a pennanular bronze brooch. A Viking brooch from Skaill Bay was part of a hoard discovered in 1858.

Detailed report on excavation of a well preserved chambered cairn, notable for its inaccessible location. Neolithic and Beaker phases were clearly distinguished and both contained pottery and small quantities of degraded human bone. Worked flint was also present in the Neolithic phase.

Further excavation at Old Kilpatrick focussed on its relationship to the Antonine Wall, further investigation of the Military Way and the north-west corner of the fort. Previous work is re-assessed in the light of the results. Excavation of the rampart at Croy Hill provided inconclusive results although the discovery of a stone-built underground chamber with steps down to it is considered in detail. The most remarkable find was two fragments of a sculptured relief of the Syrian god, Jupiter Dolichenus with a partial inscription.

The inventory records the occurrence of Roman finds on ninety-six sites in Scotland. Most are provincial and derive from Gaul, the Rhineland, or Britain. They are widely distributed over the country, though, as might be expected, the more important finds come from the area south of the Antonine Wall.
