Scottish Community Archaeology Conference
East Lothian Council and Archaeology Scotland are excited to announce the finalised programme for the first national Scottish Community Archaeology Conference, to be held over a weekend on the 16th and 17th of May 2009 at Queen Margaret University, Musselburgh. Opening remarks will be given by Mike Russell, Minister for Culture, External Affairs and the Constitution.
This is not only a celebration of community projects in Scotland, but a chance for volunteers from all over the country to share experiences with one another, and with those who work full time as archaeologists, interpreters, or fundraisers. There will be a series of workshops where volunteers and professionals can share ideas and find solutions to problems, and there will be a large exhibition featuring community projects and heritage organisations.
This conference is sponsored by The Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic Scotland, The Robert Kiln Charitable Trust, The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and ALGAO:Scotland.
