The 1970s excavations at Broxmouth represent one of the most comprehensive examinations of any Iron Age hillfort. It was also the place where a whole generation of Scottish archaeologists learned their trade. Like many projects of its time, however, Broxmouth remained unpublished, other than tantalising descriptions contained in various interim reports. This volume sets out the full results of the Broxmouth Project for the first time, tracking the long history of the site from initial settlement in the Early Iron Age to its abandonment during the period of Roman occupation.

Johnny Horn, (Scottish Archaeological Journal) – :
This publication is a triumph, presenting an extremely competent and high quality archaeological investigation and the authors should be congratulated on this achievement.
Professor Harold Mytum (British Archaeology) – :
The volume concludes with some fascinating interpretations that make the most of the evidence, and all involved – excavators and post-excavation team – can be extremely proud of the result of their efforts. This will be a standard work for generations to come.
