NE Scotland Regional Research Framework - Mesolithic
Period 8000BC - 4000BC
Our knowledge of sites from this period comes largely from either chance finds of flint tools and flakes, or excavated examples ahead of new developments being built under the planning system. New discoveries can be made at any time. The documents available below will be updated as soon as possible to include these new discoveries, however if you know of a site that is not included then please contact the Archaeology Service.
