Contrasting Communities: Relationship Change in the Western Isles of Scotland
Author(s): Niall Sharples
The paper is an examination of the cultural differences that exist within the Western Isles and how these relate to similarities and differences with other areas of the North Atlantic, such as the Orkney and Shetland. It will focus on the changes that occur in the first and second millenium AD; the relationship with the Picts and Scots, the transformation brought about by the Vikings and the integration of the islands into the Kingdom of the Scots. These political changes can be compared and contrasted with changes in architecture and material culture that express a much more nuanced pattern of cultural transformation.
