The most recent edition of the Scottish Archaeological Journal was published in summer 2023. Volume 45 is eclectic as ever! It includes reports on excavations at a pit alignment in East Lothian, Bronze Age hut platforms in the Borders, and early medieval settlement sites in the Lothians. There are also notes on an early Bronze Age shaft hole implement found in Paisley city centre, and work at a medieval structure on Bute. Plus the usual selection of book reviews.
The Scottish Archaeological Journal is published to further the study of Scotland and northern Britain, by publishing papers, notes and reviews dealing primarily with the archaeological evidence. The Journal can accommodate papers reporting on fieldwork, discussions of collections housed in northern museums and synthetic discussions on any topic that is relevant to the understanding of Scottish archaeology and history.
This Handbook outlines the historical and geographical background, and provides a detailed guide to the remains on the ground. It is lavishly illustrated in colour with 75 illustrations and 144 pages. The handbook was first published by the Society in 1960, with this sixth and new edition published in 2015.
