Archaeology Review

A 2000 year old weaving comb
A review into how Historic Scotland supports, funds and utilises archaeology was concluded in early 2012.

It looked at the scope of the archaeology work the agency commissions how it supports projects across the country and how the resulting evidence is used in our understanding of our history, the properties in our care and the way we present information to visitors.

By delivering the review’s recommendations Historic Scotland will develop its role to champion the archaeology sector.

A dedicated forum to represent the sector and influence related policy will be created in due course.
