Abstract

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.
