A best practice document for Aberdeenshire roundhouses was recently launched as part of the Building (Ancient) Lives project.
Dr Tanja Romankiewicz (University of Edinburgh) and Bruce Mann (Aberdeenshire Council Archaeology Service), have developed a best practice document for excavating and analysing Aberdeenshire roundhouses. The document aims to inform Local Authorities, contractors and community groups to maximise data for local Historic Environment Records and future research.
