Archaeology Scotland provides a variety of relevant services and information, including educational resources and publications. The group co-ordinates a number of initiatives including Scottish Archaeology Month, which takes place every September as part of European Heritage Days. Hundreds of free archaeological and heritage themed events take place all over Scotland, allowing people to view usually unseen artefacts and sites. Archaeology Scotland also organises the annual Archaeological Research in Progress conference in partnership with the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
Background and structure
The organisation began as a branch of the Council for British Archaeology, established in 1944. The Council for Scottish Archaeology became an independent body in 1988, and was reconstituted as a limited company in 2004. The name Archaeology Scotland was adopted in 2008.
