On Thursday, October 15th 2020, the first lecture in our 2020-2021 lecture programme will be given by Glasgow University's Dr Kenny Brophy, who will be giving a talk on Megalithic overkill? Rethinking the multiple stone rows of Caithness and Sutherland.


The multiple stone rows of northern Scotland are one of the most enigmatic monument types in Scotland. In this talk Dr Brophy will focus on University of Glasgow fieldwork that might help us to understand these possibly Bronze Age monuments – Alex Morrison's work at Halmie in the 1990s and my own excavations at Battle Moss in 2003-5. Dr Brophy will outline results of both projects, and discuss how this might help us to make sense of famous sites like the Hill o' Many Stanes.

Under the current circumstances this lecture is being offered online via zoom, marking a historic first for Glasgow Archaeological Society's lecture programme! To attend the lecture on October 15th, you need to download zoom to your device if you have not already done so.
