An important study of a major excavation with lasting influence for archaeological study in Scotland. 'Anyone who reads the sections of his volume which describe the structures and the pottery, and then compares them with previous work, will see how James Curle's accurate and unflagging sobriety of description marked a new epoch in the study of the subject' (Richmond, 'James Curle', Proc Soc Antiq Scot 1978).
