Darkness Visible: The Sculptor’s Cave, Covesea, from the Bronze Age to the Picts

by Ian Armit and Lindsey Büster

Click here to access the e-book:

The Sculptor’s Cave is one of the most enigmatic prehistoric sites in Britain. Excavated in the 1920s and 1970s, new analysis of the archive has revealed a complex history of funerary and ritual activity from the Late Bronze Age to the Roman Iron Age. Using innovative methods and new techniques, this volume re-examines the results of earlier excavations and places the site in its wider British and European context.

Praise for the book:

‘Armit and Büster’s handsomely produced volume transports us back in time to both the late Bronze Age and Roman Iron Age, revealing exciting new evidence for the treatment of the dead in both periods.

– Gordon Noble (Current Archaeology, ‘Darkness Visible: the Sculptor’s Cave, Covesea, from the Bronze Age to the Picts’)
