Call for submissions: Proceedings volume 147

The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland welcomes submissions to its annual journal, the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.

The Proceedings has been publishing articles presenting original ideas, interpretations, discoveries and results on all aspects of Scotland’s archaeology, history and heritage since its first volume in 1851. Today, the Proceedings continues to publish high-quality, peer-reviewed research and is a vital part of the Society’s aim to translate Scotland’s past for a contemporary audience, and promote understanding of Scotland’s historical and archaeological environment.
