The Iron Age settlement at Culduthel (NGR: NH 664 414) is one of the most significant later prehistoric sites identified in mainland Scotland. Archaeological excavation in 2005 revealed a craftworking centre which had specialised in the production of iron, bronze and glass objects between the late 1st Millennium BC and early 1st Millennium AD. This volume combines illustrated catalogues of finds with expert analyses to offer a unique insight into manufacture, trade and exchange of an Iron Age community in north-east Scotland.

Praise for the book:

‘[Culduthel] brings together 20 years of painstaking research into the finds to share extraordinary insights into life between 200 BC and AD 200 in the Moray Firth.’

– Susy Macaulay (Press and Journal, ‘Sophisticated, artistic, well-travelled: what the Culduthel dig tells us about pre-historic Highlanders’)
