Howe: Four Millenia of Orkney Prehistory

Howe: Four Millenia of Orkney Prehistory

by Beverley Ballin-Smith (Editor)




Excavations at Howe between 1978 and 1982 presented an unparalleled opportunity to examine the extensive and complex remains of a broch settlement, and thereby more fully understand the stages of evolution from roundhouse to massive complex roundhouse. The ensuing discovery of the earlier Neolithic structures and enclosed early Iron Age settlements added further layers of importance to this rich and complex site. This volume presents the detailed excavation report, discussing the structural and environmental evidence, the material culture, human remains, and radiocarbon dates.
