From the cover: “Edinburgh and South-East Scotland is a splendid introduction to a rich area tor the archaeologist. Graham and Anna Ritchie have covered south-east Scotland from the Cheviots in the south to Stirling and Fife in the north. They begin with the hunters and gatherers 5000 years B. C. and follow man’s development in this region through the first farmers and metal workers to the fort builders and iron workers of the first centuries A. D. There is a concise treatment of the Roman occupation of the area and the book concludes with a new study of the early archaeology of Edinburgh. The authors provide a gazetteer of sites as well as guides to museums and to further reading. The clear text and the many photographs and drawings make this a particularly attractive handbook for the amateur archaeologist.”
