Archaeology Dig: The Archaeology of Eighteenth Century Scotland – SECOND DATE!

August 1, 2015 @ 8:00 am5:00 pm

The Heritage and Archaeological Research Practice is running an archaeological field school in the Scottish Highlands in June 2015. Participants will be involved in researching, surveying and recording a series of historical and archaeological sites associated with the Jacobite rebellions and Highland Clearances of 18th Century Scotland.

Training will be provided in archaeological recording practices including historical analyses, map regression, archaeological field survey, technical drawing, photography, building recording and GIS.

HARP will also be running a Field School on the Isle of Mull in August/September 2015. The Field School will be continuing on from the 2014 excavation and wil consist of two weeks at the excavation at the abandoned settlement of Kildavie, possibly dating back to the earl Midieval period. The settlement was inhabited until the 18th Century before being abandoned, with many villagers leaving Scotland for North America and Australia. There are 18 places available in this Field School.

Even if you are not able to make it, you can still support the digs; they are looking to reach their fundraising goal. Click here to read more about the archaeology opportunities in Scotland and how you can help!
