Community Archaeology Workshop

Community finds workshop held at the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute laboratory.

Following the community archaeology fieldwalking carried out last month, local community volunteers received basic training in archaeological finds cataloguing.

Finds from the fieldwalking in West Mainland Orkney included burnt animal bone, possible stone tools and a flint scraper. Further community based field walking and workshops are planned for the summer. If you want to be part of this archaeological project in Orkney then contact us on studyarchaeology@uhi.ac.uk
