Description

Dùn Chàrlabhaigh and the Hebridean Iron Age

By Ian Armit and Noel Fojut

Dùn Chàrlabhaigh or Dun Carloway, is one of Scotland's finest brochs: an astounding survival from Iron Age times.

In Dùn Chàrlabhaigh and the Hebridean Iron Age, Ian Armit and Noel Fojut provide a full and lively account of the monument: and explore its place in the wider Iron Age of the Isles.

The book addresses some of the most commonly asked questions about Dun Dùn Chàrlabhaigh: when was the broch built? Who built it? was it the home of Iron Age warriors, pirates, or farmers? Why do the walls contain so many passages and stairs? In what sort of society did broochs flourish?

The authors also describe the later myths and legends associated with the site and include a list of other iron Age sites to visit.
