1983 RCAHMS Aerial Survey

There were exceptionally good results from the main summer season, in which more than 800 sites were recorded, including: unenclosed settlements, mainly associated with souterrains; square-barrow cemeteries; long timber houses; Roman military installations of all types, including a new fort at Inverquharity (Angus District, Tayside).

A catalogue of sites recorded in 1981 was issued in May 1983 and preparation of the 1982 material for publication has begun. Prints of sites recorded in previous seasons may be inspected in the National Monuments Record of Scotland.
