Barra to Berneray

Berneray Hostel Annex

Berneray Hostel Annex – Not Archaeological, Yet!

From Barra to Berneray is the result of 13 years of archaeological research on 12 islands, all but two of them now uninhabited, at the southern end of the Hebridean chain. A team has recorded almost 2000 sites and monuments. Their pre-history has been illuminated by carefully-selected excavations on sites of all periods and types. It includes a complete list of sites, monuments and excavation reports, including the Bronze Age kerbed cairns of Vatersay, the earth-house on Pabbay, the Iron Age aisled-roundhouse at Alt Chrisal on Barra and the Pabbay broch.  530 pages – hard-back £60  – an academic discount of 50% is available from Sheffield Academic Press  Mansion House 19 Kingfield Road Sheffield S11 9AS.
