Archaeological Research in Progress (ARP) is a day conference presenting new research findings and best practice in archaeology covering all periods from across Scotland and beyond. It is organised in alternate years by Archaeology Scotland and the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. The event on Saturday 25 May 2019 was well attended, and the wide range of support gratefully received from sponsors helps to demonstrate collaboration and highlights cross-sector support for the rapid dissemination of archaeological research.
