Historic Dunbar


Part of the Scottish Burgh Survey, this book provides an accessible and broad-ranging synthesis of existing knowledge on historic Dunbar, as well as offering conservation guidance for future development. Dunbar's rich past is reflected in the diversity of its surviving archaeology - prehistoric enclosures to the south of the town, Iron Age and Anglian settlement in Castle Park, the medieval castle, its friary, tolbooth, parish church, as well as later buildings such as the Belhaven Brewery and the harbour warehouses. The authors look at the archaeological potential of key sites in the town, to direct more detailed research and further the conservation of Dunbar's heritage.
