Highway through history : an archaeological journey on the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route

Dingwall, Kirsty2018
Books
The Aberdeen Western Peripheral route / Balmedie to Tipperty project also known as the Aberdeen Bypass, is a major infrastructure project in the north-east of Scotland. The construction of the new road around the western limits of the city of Aberdeen and its surrounds provided an excellent opportunity to examine the archaeology of the region. This book provides a synthesis of the most exciting discoveries, explaining how they fit into our wider understanding of the archaeology of the region and relating them back to the landscape as it changed around them over the millenia. It also describes some of the techniques that archaeologists use to investigate the archaeology in the ground, and looks at how we analyse and interpret the results to bring different strands of evidence together and tell the story of the lives of the people of the region.
