Happy Day of Archaeology to everyone! RCAHMS blog contributions will be filtered out over the course of the day so make sure to check back for more videos, photos and information from what our staff get up to.
Below is the video contribution from Brian Wilkinson, SRP Education Officer at RCAHMS, for Day of Archaeology 2011. Here he discusses his current work involving the Scotland’s Rural Past Project, including visits to schools, the recent publication and how to find out more information.
You can visit the Scotland’s Rural Past website for more information including training videos in Using a GPS, Creating a field Sketch, Measured survey using a plane-table, and measured survey using tape and offset.
The recent publication ‘Scotland’s Rural Past: Community Archaeology in Action’ is currently being given away for free. You can either pick up a copy from reception at RCAHMS in Edinburgh or email Kirsty at Kirsty.MacDonald@rcahms.gov.uk for your copy.
