    The Medieval Kirk, Cemetery And Hospice At Kirk Ness, North Berwick: The Scottish Seabird Centre Excavations 1999-2006
    Thomas Addyman - HR - Oxbow Books
    Kirk Ness has long been considered likely to be an early Christian centre, whose dedication to St Andrew may perhaps be linked with the 8th century translation of the relics of St Andrew's to Fife. Such early dating was confirmed by a new sequence of radiocarbon dates from excavations carried out in 1999-2006. This title explores the excavations and what was found at the Scottish Seabird Centre from 1999 until 2006.
