Scarf Consultation

Draft chapters are being prepared and will be linked to from this page. Your feedback is welcome: are there any mistakes? are we missing key examples? do you know of any other radiocarbon dates? can you fill in missing sources? and most importantly, what research gaps do you think need to be filled? And of course pointing out typos and grammatical errors is always welcome.

All comments should be emailed to higharf@gmail.com by 31st December 2020 31st January 2021.

A note about the drafts:
These were written during lockdown, and without library access. As a result, a number of places are flagged in the drafts to check various sources and augment once access to libraries becomes possible. In some cases, detailed comments are still awaited from  contributors. The final versions therefore may look substantially different. The final Highland Regional ScARF will be published on the ScARF website (scarf.scot), with sections subdivided, but for ease the full chapters are joined here for comments.

When drafts are available, they will be highlighted with a link below
