Excavations of neolithic decorated pottery and possible mesolithic material at Spurryhillock

Professional journal article by Derek Alexander published in the Proc. Soc. Antiq. Scotland, regarding the finds at Spurryhillock. Some of the lithics recovered suggest the site was a factory for mesolithic blade manufacturing. Charcoal recovered has included some specimens traced to oak (quercus).
