The projects below are now in their final stages and are not currently seeking further volunteers.
Tarradale Through Time Project. Lead Eric Grant
For some years NOSAS members have been field walking after the fields are ploughed in winter. Important sites dating from Mesolithic to post-medieval have been identified as well as some fascinating finds of worked flint, pottery and coins. Field walking normally takes place each Sunday during the winter months. Please contact Eric if you are interested.
In 2017 the Tarradale Through Time Project was awarded £69,300 of Heritage Lottery Funding to undertake a programme of archaeological excavations and investigations. It has now completed its third season of excavations and is its winding down phase. See the Tarradale Through Time website for the most up to date information.
Scotland’s Rock Art Project (ScRAP). Lead Alan Thompson.
This 5-year project, led by Dr Tertia Barnett started on 1 January 2017. The aim is to record the rock art across the whole of Scotland in a consistent and useful way. NOSAS undertook the pilot field work before the project is rolled out across Scotland. A summary is available here, the SCRAP website is live at www.rockart.scot
