Excavation at Kaimes Hill, Ratho 1964-72
Kaimes Hill, City of Edinburgh, has been the focus for both antiquarian and modern archaeological research since at least the mid-19th century and has produced evidence for activity dating from the Mesolithic through to the medieval period. You can view and download the report here.
The paper assimilates this evidence, provides a complete account of the excavations undertaken over the ramparts, ‘hut circles’, prehistoric ritual and funerary monuments by D D A Simpson between 1964–72, and presents the results obtained from recent artefactual analysis and radiocarbon dating.
