Rampart Scotland Archaeology Fieldschool 2010

November 20, 2009

Hillforts are the iconic and classic image of the British Iron Age and yet as a class of monuments they are poorly understood, mainly due to a lack of dating evidence. The Rampart Scotland project (following on from the successful Hillforts of Strathdon Project) is specifically designed to undertake keyhole excavation across a series of hillforts in order to collect dating evidence. We will also carry out a survey of the surrounding landscape in order to look at possible associated features.

Training in the field will be given by professional archaeologists in the following areas: evaluation, excavation, sampling and surveying techniques, the archaeology and history of the Lothians  including site tours.

Places are limited but are open to students and volunteers with any level of experience.

Minimum Age: 18

Cost: £395 including food, accommodation (bunk house) and transport to and from site.

Anyone interested should seek further information including a project description from Murray Cook, MIFA
