ScARF LogoThe Nordic Research Network conference 2016 ‘Bridges Between: Norse and Insular Worlds’ will take place on May the 4th 2016 in Glasgow. The Scottish Archaeological Research Framework (ScARF) is offering five student bursaries to support attendance at the conference. These bursaries are designed to allow students to hear about current research in Norse and Medieval archaeology and participate in discussions within the discipline.

We are looking for students:

  1. Be currently conducting research that demonstrates a clear connection to Scottish archaeology or archaeological data;
  2. Be able to submit a short report (c.300-500 words) by the end of June 2016 which outlines how you have benefitted from attendance for the Nordic Research Network (NRN) conference ‘Bridges Between: Norse and Insular Worlds AD 500-1500’.
  3. Understand that as ScARF is a project to highlight current archaeological research in Scotland, that we will ask you to contribute to a ScARF panel report by either providing a short (c.300-500 words) piece of text or a digital poster that shows how your research fits into an existing ScARF panel report OR provides new research that will enrich the ScARF resource.
  4. Understand that your report and/or piece of research may be used in a future Society of Antiquaries of Scotland newsletter or blog; and
  5. Name and contact details for two referees who will support your application, one of whom will be your head of subject/department.
