This volume is the report of the archaeological excavations that took place on the island of Rhum between 1984 and 1986. The text contains details of the stratigraphical remains on site, and in particular the large body of Mesolithic material recovered. It describes the methodology, detailed analyses of the artefactual assemblages as well as the environmental and geophysical studies that were carried out in conjunction with the excavations. A section on the use of raw materials in the west of Scotland takes the coverage beyond Rhum, and the final section presents an interpretation of the site in the early settlement of Scotland.

Praise for the book:

‘[M]ajor contribution to Scottish Mesolithic Studies.’
