Age of Stone
Throughout January and the Age of Stone we venture into the depths of prehistory to explore the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic. From scatters of stone tools and traces of domestic houses to chambered cairns and rock art, this age gave rise to monumental architecture and the adoption of farming, and has left a lasting legacy on Scotland’s landscape to this day.
