    Farming And Fishing In The Outer Hebrides AD 600-1700: The Udal, North Uist
    D. Serjeantson - Paperback - Highfield
    50 years ago, Iain Crawford began a 40 year programme of excavation on the Udal peninsula, in North Uist, in the Western Isles of Scotland, employing new and innovatory techniques and accumulating a remarkable collection of finds and site records covering a sequence of occupation from the Neolithic to the 17th century. His excavations have acquired mythical status because Crawford only publicised the most spectacular elements, discouraged the visits of other academics and deterred researchers' enquiries. This work comprises an important contribution to Scottish archaeology and social history with clear implications for continuity in the lifestyle of the Western Isles over this period.
