Renfrewshire: A Scottish County’s Hidden Past
Out of stock
Renfrewshire is largely ignored in the general studies of Scotlands cultural heritage. In Renfrewshire, Derek Alexander redresses the balance and for the first time provides an overview of the archaeological evidence for the county, which includes the Local Authority Areas of Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.
Surprisingly, close examination reveals a wide variety of sites and artefacts that relate to the full range of prehistoric and historic human activity in Scotland. From the first flints left by the Mesolithis hunter-gatherers to the imposing remains of Renfrewshires industrial past, which are among some of Scotlands earliest examples.
