This task included updates to their location, classification and period, the creation of digital site-area polygons and the arrangement of site descriptions under a project heading. Revision was undertaken by Darroch Bratt and George Geddes, HES. The text below is taken from the original report and outlines its scope and staffing.

'This list of sites and monuments in the districts of Clackmannan and Falkirk has been prepared by archaeological surveyors attached to the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland as part of a project financed by the Department of the Environment and sponsored by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.

The items listed range in period from prehistoric burial-cairns and forts to deserted farms of comparatively recent date. The following categories have been omitted from the lists: buildings eligible for listing by the Scottish Development Department as buildings of special architectural interest under the Town and Country Planning Acts (Scotland); buildings in towns; medieval and later sites in the medieval burgh of Dumbarton; roads, railways and canals; most structures of 19th-centry and later date.
