16 Apr NEW BOOK BY SUSAN HUNTER
Eaglesham, The Farmlands and the Orry brings together 18 Association of Certificated Field Archaeologists (ACFA) Occasional Papers recording fieldwork carried out over 20 years by Susan and Robin Hunter in the Parish of Eaglesham.

This book encompasses the information from the Occasional Papers into one book that is easily read and easy to store on one’s bookshelf. The author Susan Hunter has been a member of Glasgow Archaeological Society for many years and was for 17 years the Membership Secretary.
She is a graduate of Glasgow University in Ancient Studies covering Archaeology, Egyptology and Celtic civilization. The book can be purchased in the Gift Shop in Eaglesham as well as Waterstone’s book shop in Newton Mearns.
