Out now from Bassman Books

In 2018 the North of Scotland Archaeological Society celebrated 20 successful years of its existence, during which it has developed into a thriving and dynamic group willing and eager to investigate new fields of archaeology and take on new challenges.

Over the years it has undertaken many projects, gaining in knowledge, experience and understanding. A Year of Highland Archaeology looks at some some of its recent archaeological projects and activities. Some have been carried out using long established methods, such as field walking and plane-tabling. Others have used more digital techniques, such as photogrammetry and drones. All, however, are enjoyed by an enthusiastic band of local amateur archaeologists.

When Flash the German Shepherd came into the life of two-year-old Iona Nicol it was the beginning of a lifelong passion for animals which in time led to the creation of Munlochy Animal Aid.

Folk We’ve Met is Iona’s story, told in her own words, of changing times and attitudes, the people who’ve supported her, and the hard work involved in building a charity now known and loved across the Highlands.

All profits from this book, which features photos of many of the animals to pass through her doors, will go towards the work of Munlochy Animal Aid.

Take a look here at more titles to enjoy from Bassman Books - the publisher on the Black Isle.
