Here we are, mired in the darkness of the season...but there is light at the end of the tunnel. We have our WWII extravaganza coming very soon and already have some potential talks lined up and at least two excavations for the upcoming season. Details on those will be released soon. In the meantime, be sure to join us for the WWII event and cast your eyes on a little article at Dig It! Scotland.

Season's Greetings all - can you believe it's nearly 2020?! Our AGM on Halloween night, complete with appropriate presentation (see here), has come and gone and we have nestled all snug in our beds until the new year. However, despite such comforts, we are already hard at work on next year's events so we'll keep in touch as we move along. Have a wonderful and safe holiday season!


September 23rd

A busy end to the summer, we've helped the SCAPE Trust with the clean and record of the ramparts and ditches of Sna Broch on Fetlar and done some cleaning and recording of our own. Many of us attended the SIRFA conference that is wrapping up today where we've had the good fortune of meeting and hearing the many voices of archaeology on Shetland and are hopeful of increased attention and activity for the wonderful sites we have moving forward. Speaking of wonderful sites, we did get the chance to get out with many of them and the North Roe Felsite Project to look at the Neolithic axe factory and hear from the experts in the field. Last item, we have the AGM scheduled for Halloween night with a nicely themed presentation to follow it (see Events).
