About this title


The dramatic setting of the small island of Dłn Čistean atop rocky cliffs and the north end of the Western Isles of Scotland is the scene for the archaeological fieldwork that is presented in this book. The results of detailed excavation and survey work, artefactual, environmental and dating specialist reports are combined with fascinating historical research to tell the story of this defended local stronghold that was caught up in the conflict and politics turmoil experienced between the islands and the mainland governmental authorities in Scotland in the 1500's and early 1600's AD.
