Abstract

This is part of the series Resource Assessment of Local History and Archaeology in West Central Scotland, commissioned for the Regional Framework for Local History and Archaeology,a partnership project led by Glasgow Museums.

This paper offers a personal perspective on the key research themes relating to the Northern Britons, who are the most obscure inhabitants of Dark Age Scotland. It includes an overview of the fragmented historical legacy of the Britons, which is essential for appreciating their cultural contribution to the making of Scotland and for identifying research priorities. A detailed review of archaeological investigations in the study area is beyond the scope of this paper, so emphasis is focused on recent work which relates to three broad areas identified for future research: secular settlement, church archaeology and political development.
