THE CHAMBERED CAIRNS OF SUTHERLAND
An Inventory of the Structures and Their Contents.

By A.S. Henshall & J.N.G. Ritchie.

Published by Edinburgh University Press in 1995, first edition. In green boards with gold titling, the book measures approx. 10 3/4" x 8 1/4" with [v] and 168 pages and numerous illustrations.

Chambered cairns are among the earliest architectural achievements of the peoples of Scotland. In this comprehensive volume covering the county of Sutherland, 72 cairns are described in detail following field visits. There are expanded accounts of those sites that have been excavated, and in most cases new plans have been prepared. It is an indispensable reference source for the Neolithic period in northern Scotland and for the study of megalithic tombs throughout western Europe.
