Online Lecture: Callander’s Hillforts in Context

Loading Events

On Wednesday 2nd June at 7.30pm, join us for an online talk by Stratford Halliday which will will present an introduction to hillforts, considering the form and function of these defended earthwork settlements, and framing Dunmore (pictured) and Auchenlaich within their wider landscape contexts. Strat started out as a later prehistorian and has developed a much wider interest in the Scottish landscape and its monuments, spanning from early prehistory to the present day. He was part of the project team for the creation of the Atlas of Hillforts.

This talk is part of our Archaeology project, which is run in partnership with the Callander Heritage Society. Thanks to Historic Environment Scotland funding for making this event possible. Thanks also to Skyscape Survey for the drone image of Dunmore, which was funded by Forestry and Land Scotland.
