Online MAD Evening: Skeletons in the Archive: Rediscovering Old Museum Collections
5 August 2021
Starts: 19:30
Ends: 21:00

Juliette Mitchell did her PhD on Pictish burials in the landscape and then started work for CFA Archaeology. Whilst there she did some archaeology in the museum archives: I got funding from HES to radiocarbon date some skeletons in the archive. There was a a treasure trove of unpublished information in Aberdeen museums and old newspapers for 8 long cists on the Kincardineshire coast, and I dated Neolithic remains from the Ackergill archive. The archive work was as interesting as the radiocarbon dates.

She will talk us through what she's discovered.
