We would welcome your feedback on whether you think an online Research Portal for Scottish Archaeology would be beneficial?


Would you be interested in an online portal to bring together people, research questions, and expertise to share and increase our knowledge of Scotland’s Archaeology?


Please take 3 minutes to fill out our online survey to help us consider whether this project is worth pursuing.

The idea is to help link researchers with archaeological projects. Initially, it could include unfinished HES-sponsored projects that need to be brought to completion but the long term vision could be for a national resource where unfinished projects or outstanding research questions could be matched with those wishing to undertake research.

This could include community groups, postgraduate and undergraduate students, professional researchers and contractors. There could also be an opportunity for local people and groups to let the wider archaeological community know what questions they would like to see answered about their local heritage.
