‘Thanks to you the best has been made of a bad job’: Vere Gordon Childe and the Bronze Age cairn at Ri Cruin, Kilmartin, Argyll & Bute

14 October 2016

Abstract

Ri Cruin is one of the series of Early Bronze Age cairns that make up the well-known linear cemetery in Kilmartin Glen, Argyll. The aim of this short paper is to make more fully accessible and account of the work undertaken by Gordon Childe in the summer of 1936 when the site was prepared for public access. Although both by the scope of the work and the archaeological results were limited it adds previously unpublished detail and touches of local colour to the record of Childe's time in Scotland.
