Nela Scholma-Mason, Archaeology and folklore : the Norse in Orkney’s prehistoric landscape, Thèse de doctorat soutenue en 2017 (Université d’York)
This research focuses on the representation of mounds and standing stones in Orkney’s folklore, and how this can inform us about potential Norse perceptions of sites and the landscape. The Orcadian folkloric record is examined under consideration of wider parallels, whilst case studies are considered individually as well as within their wider landscape setting.
