Scottish Community Archaeology Booklet

Following on from the highly successful community archaeology conference that was held in May 2009, a booklet was produced by showcasing the different types of community archaeology projects that were represented at the conference in Musselburgh. This provides a very interesting and useful snapshot of community archaeology in Scotland in 2009. Archaeology Scotland's table at the Scottish Community Archaeology Conference

Biddy Simpson, Heritage Officer with East Lothian Council, who was responsible for co-ordinating the production of the booklet, said “The main purpose of this booklet is not only to promote and celebrate the wealth and diversity of Scottish community archaeology initiatives but to pay tribute to the hundreds of volunteers who give up their own time to investigate and celebrate their own local heritage.

The first of its kind, this booklet clearly demonstrates the amount of progress that has been made in community archaeology in Scotland over the last ten years and it is crammed full of examples of fantastic archaeology projects from all over the country in addition to supporting articles by national heritage organisations.

To get a copy of the booklet please contact, 01620 827408 or write to Cultural Services, 9-11 Lodge Street, Haddington, East Lothian, EH41 3HA referencing ‘Community Archaeology Booklet’. Booklets are priced at £3. Cheques should be made out to East Lothian Council. If you would prefer to pay by card please include a daytime contact telephone number so a member of staff can contact you to organise this.
