Scottish archaeology events - Scottish Archaeology Month 2012

Scottish Archaeology Month is a an annual month-long festival of archaeology events and activities, held across Scotland.

Scottish Archaeology Month 2012 will feature archaeology events and activities held across Scotland throughout September. Scottish Archaeology Month, which is organised by Archeology Scotland provides opportunities for the public to find more about the archaeological heritage of their local area. Events will include lectures, guided walks, digs, re-enactments and practical workshops. Scottish Archaeology Month also comprises a schools programme with school groups getting involved in hands-on archaeology events, both on field trips and in the classroom.

This year, the September festival season will also include Homeland Argyll and Bute, a new project during which people from the island will create multi-media exhibitions based on the historical crofting culture and the Highland Clearances in the area. Events are posted on the Archaeology Scotland website where there is an interactive events map making listings easy to find by region and topic and anyone can register their event, as long as that event is related to Scotland's heritage.
