Like all of our lectures, attendance is free of charge and open to members and non-members alike.

About the Lecture

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.
