Welcome to SESARF!

SESARF has been under development by SESAP (South East Scotland Archaeology Partnership) and Wessex Archaeology since June 2017. The Regional Research Framework (RRF) will cover the council areas of Edinburgh, Midlothian, East Lothian and The Scottish Borders and is being funded by the Society of Antiquaries for Scotland supported by a grant from Historic Environment Scotland. The RRF is formed around three key themes of Understand, Value and Protect and is continuing to be developed throughout 2018 with a wide range of stakeholders.

Due for final delivery via an online portal in Spring 2019 a lot of progress has already been made this year, with a specific focus on collating the ‘known’ archaeology of the region and priorities for future research. 

We are pleased to announce that we will be actively seeking targeted contributions on all archaeological periods, key themes, specialist case studies and research questions and priorities. 

For those of you who attended our workshops last year and expressed an interest in contributing, we will be in touch soon. For anyone who would like to be added in to the list of contributors please do get in touch with the SESARF project via our dedicated email address: sesarf@wessexarch.co.uk.

Workshops will take place during 2018 once dates are planned they will be posted here.
