Titled Iron Age Mnemonics: A Biographical Approach to Dwelling in Later Prehistoric Britain, the paper looks at a set of superbly preserved Iron Age roundhouses at Broxmouth hillfort in south-east Scotland which saw periodic modification on a generational basis and explores what this tells us about the ways in which prehistoric people used domestic architecture to forge and maintain ancestral links with the past.

The paper is open access, and available online. Read the paper.
