ST ANDREW’S DAY WEDNESDAY 30 NOVEMBER 2022
AUGUSTINE UNITED CHURCH, 41 GEORGE IV BRIDGE, EDINBURGH AND ONLINE
Fellows are invited to register to attend the Anniversary Meeting either in person or online. This will be a hybrid event and will start at the earlier time of 12:30noon GMT. Number of in-person attendees at the church is limited to 100 so please let us know in advance if you are unable to take up your place.
The Anniversary Meeting will also include a short talk by Dr Nela Scholma-Mason FSAScot on Forgotten Stories. This talk will provide a brief overview of a short film about the discovery of Taversoe Tuick (Orkney) by Eliza Traill Burroughs in 1898. This short film was written and directed by Nela and produced in collaboration with NESCol and The National Trust for Scotland, funded by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and AOC Archaeology Group.
Nela has degrees in Archaeology from the University of Münster; the University of Oxford (Keble College) and the University of York. She has worked in commercial archaeology and in research and is interested in folklore and biography.
This event will be followed by a reception and buffet lunch.
It may be necessary, due to future pandemic restrictions, to move this to fully online only. Please keep an eye on the Society website, e-newsletters and your email inbox for the latest news and further information on Society events.

This will give you the opportunity to view the Agenda and vote online for new Fellows and Council members. The agenda and further documentation is available on the Fellow’s Only area of the website and will be posted to those Fellows for whom we do not have an email address. We will also be circulating a notice to register and vote by email.
As well as the opportunity to vote online for new Fellows and Council members, there are also two important Motions being proposed by Council – one for a change to the Laws of the Society and one regarding subscription rates.
Voting will be counted in advance of the meeting itself, and ballots will close on 12noon GMT Tuesday 29th November 2022 to facilitate the independent scrutiny of the votes by two Fellows and the results tallied.
Voting is now open.
Looking forward to seeing as many Fellows as possible on St Andrew’s Day!
