Dr Lindsey Büster FSAScot and Professor Ian Armit FSAScot present a lecture on “Darkness Visible: The Sculptor’s Cave, Covesea, from the Bronze Age to the Picts”, recorded and presented by Dr Büster.
This lecture accompanies the book published by the Society. 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 lecture re-examines the results of earlier excavations and places the site in its wider British and European context.
The Society lectures are gratefully funded by Sir Angus Grossart QC OBE DL LLD DLitt FRSE FSAScot.
