Just published by Edinburgh University Press, 'Atlas of the Hillforts of Britain and Ireland' by Gary Lock and Ian Ralston, brings together four years of work into the first comprehensive series of maps of the hillforts of Britain and Ireland - over 4,000 sites from Shetland to Cornwall to County Clare expertly assessed and analysed.
