Scottish Community Archaeology Conference

January 18, 2008

February 2009 – weekend TBC

East Lothian Council and the Council for Scottish Archaeology will host a Scottish Community Archaeology Conference in East Lothian (location TBC).

Papers will provide a snap shot of community projects both from East Lothian and across the rest of Scotland. The aim is to reflect the diversity of commmunity archaeology in Scotland, offering participants a representative slice through current projects.

The second day of the conference will feature practical workshops on how to develop a successful community project.

At this stage the organisers are calling for suggested workshop themes to ensure that sessions will cover areas where participants would most like to develop their understanding. Suggestions include applying for funding; access issues, landowner liability; maintaining project momentum and keeping volunteers.

The conference is also open to any group or individual who wishes to display information about their project, so to note interest in contributing a display/stand or to notify of workshop ideas please contact Biddy Simpson at or Helen Bradley This conference is partly grant aided by the Heritage Lottery Fund and East Lothian Council as part of the Prestongrange Community Archaeology Project ( Prestongrange Volunteers
