In collaboration with Professor Karen Hardy of ICREA, Wessex Archaeology is launching a week long field school around Upper Loch Torridon, Wester Ross. The programme integrates landscape survey covering all periods of human activity in the area, especially the rich Mesolithic and early prehistoric record. The course focuses on understanding the archaeology, geomorphology and landscape history and how professional archaeologists research and develop these varied datasets into detailed, accurate and valuable cultural heritage products. The aim of the field school is to provide real experience of research processes and professional workflows to underpin future skills development for attendees.
The course is a mixture of fieldwork, lectures, workshops and enjoying the beauty and archaeology of this stunning landscape.
For more info and contact details see the project at Past Horizons.
