Abstract/Summary

The study of stone circles in Scotland has mainly been focused on the large monuments of Orkney and the Western Isles. Several decades of fieldwork raised a series of problems that demanded further investigation. For example, when were the last stone circles built, how did they differ from earlier constructions and how were they related to henge monuments? How frequently were these places reused, and did this secondary activity change the character of those sites? These were some of the questions investigated by recent excavations in Aberdeenshire, and this output includes the results of new fieldwork undertaken at the Scottish recumbent stone circle of Hillhead; the stone circle of Waulkmill and the stone circle and henge at Hill of Tuach at Kintore.
