“Scotland’s Archaeology Strategy aims to increase knowledge, understanding and interpretation of the past. This is achieved by making knowledge discoverable, accessible and reusable, and by promoting and supporting research underpinned by clear and appropriate research objectives.”

ScARF Evaluations

The Scottish Archaeological Research Framework is designed to be the go to resource for Scottish archaeology, one which provides an overview of the subject and also a set of useful and relevant research questions for everyone to use. The first ScARF national panel reports were published in June 2012. In 2015 a user survey was published consider who was using ScARF and their experience. A more-in depth evaluation of ScARF was published in 2019. You can find out more about the Scottish Archaeological Research Framework by visiting their website.
