Title : First farmers : regional developments and variations in Eastern Scotland

Description :
The "First Farmers project" website publishes the research work carried out at six locations in eastern Scotland (Ballendrick, Claish Farm, Duncrub, Mountstewart, Nethermuir and Upper Gothenscarried) by the University of Stirling. The website provides an overview of the project. The research team led by Dr Barclay and Dr Wickham-Jones explored the settlements of the first farmers in lowland Scotland, an area which was apparently home to a great concentration of religious sites. The project interpreted how farming began and the challenges facing a Neolithic settlement. All final reports can be accessed through a series of files (mostly PDF) and pages. This project received funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Board within the Research Grants scheme.
