Archaeology Around Glasgow

Sue Hothersall

Glasgow in the 21st Century is a modern cosmopolitan city. But within a 20 mile radius of it – if you know where to look – are clues to the area’s history, which dates back to at least 4500BC.

From Roman Bath Houses to the recent industrial past, from curious hogback stones to the timber ponds at Port Glasgow, not forgetting the medieval wonders of Glasgow’s beautiful cathedral and Paisley’s awe-inspiring abbey, our past is all around us. Whether you are a native Glaswegian or a visitor to the city, you will find somewhere to explore in this accessible, fact-packed guide to 50 remarkable sites around Glasgow.

Published to mark the 150th anniversary of Glasgow Archaeological Society, the guide is divided into five geographical areas to help you plan your trip, and describes the history of the sites, what you expect to see, and how to get there.  Some of the sites are well known, while others may be unfamiliar even to people who have them on their doorstep. All have been thoroughly researched by the author and walked by members of Glasgow Archaeological Society. The book is available from all Glasgow Museum Shops, via the website or at meetings of GAS.

Price: £10 | Postage within the UK: £1.50
