Date September 1977 - November 1978

Event ID 1107709

Category Project

Type Project


The records of archaeological sites included in the RCAHMS list for Easter Ross, published in 1979, were revised in December 2021. 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 managed by 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 Easter Ross 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 Scottish Development Department and sponsored by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. The items listed range in period from prehistoric burial-cairns to deserted farms of comparatively recent date. The following categories have been omitted from the list: buildings eligible for listing as buildings of special architectural or historic interest under the Town and Country Planning Acts (Scotland); buildings in towns; medieval and later sites in the medieval burghs of Dingwall and Tain; roads, railways and canals; most structures of 19th-century and later date. The committee are indebted to Mrs J Durham and Dr E Macnamara for their assistance in the compilation of this list'.
