Archaeology Scotland

About this Organisation

We are a leading educational charity working to inspire people to discover, explore, care for and enjoy Scotland’s archaeological heritage.

- co-ordinate the Scottish Archaeology Month in September (a bonanza of mostly free events across Scotland)
- advocate for Scotland’s heritage
- run Adopt-a-Monument for community groups and promote the use of archaeology in the classroom and lifelong learning
- are the lead body for Aim 4 of Scotland’s Archaeology Strategy which is all about encouraging greater engagement
- we run the amazing Heritage Hero Awards.

Our journal, Discovery and excavation in Scotland is the “go to” place for finding out what fieldwork has taken place in Scotland each year. Membership gives you access to the journal and magazine as well as other rewards and benefits and helps us to do more to safeguard our heritage.
