Tarradale Through Time: Community Engagement with Archaeology in the Highlands
NOSAS has been awarded £69,300 of Heritage Lottery Funding to undertake a community archaeological project on the Black Isle commencing Autumn 2017. Further information can be found on the Tarradale Through Time website.
A summary of what the project has achieved so far can read on the NOSAS Blog.
Excavations September 2018
The funding from HLF is on the understanding that Tarradale Through Time is a community archaeological project and we need to involve the local community in our excavation and post excavation work. We are looking for several different kinds of volunteers: Firstly, novice diggers who are keen to get their first experience on an archaeological dig. Secondly, experienced diggers who can work alongside and help less experienced diggers, including complete beginners, who will be given training. Finally, we are looking for experienced and inexperienced volunteers who may be less keen on digging but are very happy to assist with, and find out more about, finds processing and recording based at Tarradale Gatehouse. Again there will be training for everyone.
There will be further opportunities for volunteering in 2019. If you are interested please email email@example.com, indicating if you are interested in digging or finds processing or both.
