Abstract

Review of the physical evidence for the early church in Scotland. Characterises the nature of the evidence for ecclesiastical sites, landmarks in past study, key recent developments, and explores six key emerging themes: the development of cemeteries as placed of burial for local Christian communities; the physical manifestations of saints’ cults; the desire to build in stone as an expression of alignment with the Roman church; the scale, complexity and diversity of ‘church’ forms and functions; the structured use of space at church settlements; and the associated crafts, industries and technologies.
