The Expansion and Contraction of Gaelic in Medieval Scotland: The Onomastic Evidence was an AHRC-funded project based in the Department of Celtic and Gaelic. The objective of the project was to understand better the way in which Gaelic expanded during the early middle ages from Argyll into eastern and southern Scotland, and the process by which it had then receded from many of these areas by 1500.
