Driscoll, S.T., Alcock, L., and Alcock, E. (1989) Reconnaissance excavations on early historic fortifications and other royal sites in Scotland, 1974-84: 3, excavations at Dundurn, Strathearn, Perthshire. Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, 119, pp. 189-226.
As part of a long-term programme of research on historically documented fortifications, excavations were carried out in 1976-77 at Dundurn, Strathearn, principally on the defences. A complicated sequence, spanning the sixth to the ninth centuries AD, was revealed in the citadel and encircling terrace rampart. The printed report gives a synthesis of the excavation results, and discusses the classification of hierarchically-organized forts and the material culture and economy of Dundurn.
