Abstract

The archaeological record for Mesolithic events in Perth and Kinross has proved elusive. On behalf of the Tay Landscape Partnership Scheme an investigation of the lithic assemblages from Perth and Kinross held in the collections of the National Museums Scotland and Perth Museum and Art Gallery has determined that there are no artefacts which can be unequivocally ascribed to the Mesolithic period. Using South Lanarkshire as an analogy, it is possible that the evidence for Mesolithic events within the designated research area for the Tay Landscape Partnership Scheme can be found through sustained systematic field walking undertaken as community archaeology projects.
