Investigating, informing, inspiring
Archaeology Scotland is a leading independent charity working to inspire people to discover, explore, care for and enjoy Scotland's archaeological heritage.
Some of the programmes and projects they run are:
* Scottish Archaeology Month - an annual archaeology festival that promotes hundreds of free events taking place all over Scotland. From the Shetland Isles to the Scottish Borders, there are talks, tours, exhibitions, workshops and hands-on opportunities to help everyone discover some of the amazing history, heritage and archaeology on the doorstep.
* Adopt-a-Monument - a nation-wide Community Archaeology scheme that provides volunteer groups with the practical advice and training they need to care for, conserve and share their local heritage. The project encourages groups to get involved in hands-on tasks to improve the condition, accessibility and interpretation of their chosen site.
* Heritage Hero Awards – a brand new Award scheme aimed primarily at young people but suitable for all ages. This Award was piloted with several groups during 2016 and will be formally launched in January 2017.
You can sign up for the annual Summer School. Community Heritage Conference, ARP Conference, Members' Day outing, Time Tour and occasional events throughout the year. Members of Archaeology Scotland receive a copy of Discovery and Excavation in Scotland - a comprehensive, up-to-date and invaluable guide to archaeological work being undertaken across Scotland and three issues of the Archaeology Scotland magazine per year.
