Celebrating Archaeology in Scotland 2021 Out Now!

We are proud to present ‘Celebrating Archaeology in Scotland 2021’, the magazine style annual report on the delivery of Scotland’s Archaeology Strategy. Intended for both a heritage professional and public audience, the magazine aims to showcase the great work taking place across the nation and promote how people from all corners of the heritage sector are delivering the aims of the Archaeology Strategy.

This year’s issue is as topical as ever, highlighting the work archaeologists are doing to understand and mitigate against climate change, to bring hidden and obscured histories to light, and use our heritage to improve wellbeing. Articles range across a wide variety of subjects, from project updates and new discoveries and research to changes in practice and process.
