Archaeology event at Polmaddy

Steeped in history, Polmaddy made the perfect place for an Archaeology Training event on Friday and Saturday just gone. Attendees got introduced to some basic techniques used by Archaeologists when surveying a site, and then put those new skills to the test with some practical tasks out in the field.

The event was run by Scotland's Rural Past team as part of this years Homecoming. Many thanks to the SRP team for all their hard work over the two days.

Polmaddy is a great place to visit at any time of the year. There is interpretation on site which gives visitors a real insight in to how this old town would have looked all those years ago. So if you find yourself in that part of the forest park then pop in!
