    This is the classic account of the history and archaeology of the Hebridean islands and the neighbouring Treshnish Isles. The result of

    painstaking research undertaken in the last years of the 19th century, it was first published privately with a limited print run in 1903. Since then

    it has remained an extremely rare and much sought-after book. This is its first modern republication. Starting with a general introduction to the

    history of the islands, Beveridge goes on to discuss in turn the domestic, pre-Christian and Christian sites of each, together with the discoveries

    that were found in them. The author also provides sections on clan history and the Norwegian occupation of the Hebrides.

    The book includes a detailed map indicating all the sites referred to in the text and seventy illustrations that provide a fascinating documentation

    of the archaeological remains of the islands before the ravages of the 20th century took their toll.
