Post-Pictish Problems: The Moray Firthlands in the 9th-11th centuries

 

In this publication Martin Carver paints a picture of the Moray Firth area in its early Christian prime, and immediately afterwards, using only material culture. His main objective is to raise the profile of this period for archaeologists and move it right up their agenda for early Historic Scotland. Needless to say, the principal source of his evidence and most of his inspiration is the Tarbat peninsula, where he undertook research and directed excavations for 14 years, between 1994 and 2004.
