13th December 2023 | Categories: Uncategorised

Dig It!, a hub for Scottish archaeology coordinated by the Society, has compiled their annual list of some of the biggest discoveries from the year to raise awareness of the archaeological work that takes place across the country.

A possible Neolithic “hall”, a Bronze Age ritual cremation cemetery, and an “elite” Iron Age hillfort are among the most ground-breaking finds.

Many Fellows feature in the list, including Dr Val Turner FSAScot, Shetland’s regional archaeologist, Dr Murray Cook FSAScot of Rampart Scotland, and Dr Sarah Jane Gibbon FSAScot of UHI Archaeology Institute.
