Close to the Wind: Archaeology and Landscape Interpretation in Scotland
More than 5,000 years of human history are traced across the Kilmartin valley in western Scotland. At least 150 prehistoric sites lie within 6 miles of the quiet village of Kilmartin. There are enigmatic carved rocks, mysterious standing stones, impressive burial cairns and the fortress of the earliest Scottish kings. But who were the early hunters, farmers and warriors and why did they leave behind such rich remains? Kilmartin House Museum, which opened in May 1997, helps to answer these questions. The story of its creation is told by its designer, Chris Hudson.
