Originally published in 1921, this book presents a detailed discussion of antiquities, must notably stone circles, discovered in the area around Dunecht House, Aberdeenshire. The text was prepared by the archaeologist and bishop George Forrest Browne (1833–1930), following an initial invitation to create a basic guide to the discoveries for visitors to Dunecht. Illustrative figures and notes are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in archaeology and the prehistory of Aberdeenshire.
