The Scottish Archaeological Research Framework (ScARF)

The Scottish Archaeological Research Framework (ScARF) launched in 2012 as a snapshot of the then current state of knowledge regarding Scotland’s past. It is designed to be constantly updated and added to as our archaeological knowledge grows. Its Scottish Heritage Hub website is a live resource, constantly updated, edited and improved by researchers in heritage organisations, universities and commercial companies and independent scholars.

Dig It!

Dig It! 2017 was a celebration of Scottish archaeology, co-ordinated by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and Archaeology Scotland. There was a packed programme of events, from people exploring the story of their own local area, to digs, festivals, and Minecraft. Many people took part and continue to be involved with Dig It!. Take a look at Dig It!’s website for more news and information.
