Call for Content – Celebrating Archaeology in Scotland 2023

We are now open for submissions for the 2023 Celebrating Archaeology in Scotland magazine. It seeks to showcase the value Archaeology brings to Scotland and report on the delivery of Scotland’s Archaeology Strategy’s key aims. This year will be the sixth issue, following on from our successful issues of the past five years, and the five year review. This year’s issue will be fully digital, available for free online and in an accessible format.

2023 makes the launch of Our Past, Our Future: The Strategy for Scotland’s Historic Environment. 

We would particularly welcome content on its three main themes –

  • Delivering the transition to net zero
  • Empowering resilient and inclusive communities and places
  • Building a wellbeing economy

We would welcome any news or stories you may have as well as information on upcoming initiatives and events from the wider archaeological community.

We have room for submissions of no more than around 300 words at the most, but we would also welcome short pieces of news or notices around 50 words in length. Submissions should have at least two high-res images to illustrate the story, and more if possible. For guidelines on your submission, including image captions, copyright, and our editing process, please refer to our notes for contributors page. 

Please send your submissions to ArchaeologyStrategy@hes.scot no later than the 7th of July. We hope to launch the magazine online in early October.

We look forward to reading your submissions!
