About this book

The craggy silhouette of the Mither Tap o'Bennachie is not simply a landmark - it is a witness to thousands of years of human settlement in north-eastern Scotland.

Each generation has left its mark here, from the large burial mounds and stone circles erected by early farming communities to later forts standing at the divide separating the documented past from these remoter periods.

The field archaeology has much to contribute to more recent history also: from the Pictish symbol stones standing along the lower Don to the unassuming ruins of crofts and farms that were still occupied at the beginning of the 20th century, the monuments have many stories to tell.

Richly illustrated with photographs, maps, and drawn plans, this volume brings together these various strands of archaeology, history and geography to uncover a remarkable past and the way it has shaped the modern landscape.
