Society of Antiquaries of Scotland -------------------- '...this enjoyable new book. ... An engaging introduction to a fascinating region'. Current Archaeology -------------------- '...it is indeed a marvellous record. ... Amply illustrated, the authors have imbued the text with a personal touch that lifts the title well above being a dry, scholarly tome into an immensely readable, detailed and, above all, enjoyable account of the sites found in mainland Scotland's most northerly county'. The Orcadian -------------------- '...a readable account and a study of the places and the people of this fascinating part of Scotland'. The Scots Magazine -------------------- '...it is filled with well-informed lively comment and interpretation, a good deal of which is new. ...an inportant book which campaigns on behalf of the richness and importance of the archaeological sites and landscapes of Caithness... ...marks the new beginning made for the archaeology of Caithness in recent years...' Am Bratach -------------------- '...gives Caithness archaeology a deserved spotlight. ...provides an in-depth discussion of prehistory and archaeological research in this isolated part of Britain... This in-depth understanding...makes the book particularly valuable... This excellent discussion of Caithness' archaeology is supported with a wealth of illustrations... ...the book is a splendid presentation and discussion of well-selected aspects of the prehistoric and early historic archaeology of Caithness...highly recommended to anyone interested not only in Caithness, but Scottish prehistory in general... Hopefully this publication will raise awareness about the richness and significance heritage of Caithness...' The Megalithic Portal -------------------- '...this beautifully produced and fascinating book... ...their book is an excellent starting point for anyone wanting to find out more. Anyone living in the area, and especially anyone travelling north...should read this book. You will be intrigued and inspired, and more than a little wiser'.

For those interested in the prehistory of Caithness, this book is for you.' SAS Bulletin -------------------- '...an engaging, readable and well-produced volume that highlights the heritage of an unfairly neglected region'.
