Archaeological Research in Progress Conference 2021

May 29


For this year’s ARP conference, the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and Archaeology Scotland are proud to present 13 recorded talks covering several different aspects of Scottish archaeology. From cutting-edge fieldwork in Shetland to community archaeology and volunteering in Dumfries & Galloway and more.

Each of the recorded talks will be available to watch on our YouTube channel in advance of this event (we will add the link to each talk below as they go live on our YouTube channel). You will then have the chance to ask questions of the speakers in two moderated panel sessions at an online live Q&A on Saturday 29 May.
