"Neolithic tensions and Iron Age compressions” presented by Dr John Barber

Noticed they have uploaded these lectures from earlier in the year. I've watched the first one so far and it was a very nice way to pass an hour.

All about brochs, chambered cairns and stuff - worth a watch some evening or two now the nights are drawing in.
