Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference celebrates public archaeology, showcases community-led projects across Scotland and supports people as they explore their connection to the past. The event is open to anyone with an interest in history, heritage or archaeology, and includes excellent talks, interactive workshops, inspirational displays and stimulating networking opportunities.
The programme for this event is currently being finalised.
The event will include talks on archaeological fieldwork and discoveries in Tiree, Ardnamurchan and elsewhere in Argyll.
The DRB Scottish Women's History Group, who are working with Scotland's Urban Past to record the Scottish itinerary of anti-slavery campaigner Frederick Douglass, will also present on their project.
There will be a special session on community empowerment. New legislation coming into force this year will create new opportunities for local groups to acquire public buildings and adapt them for community use.
Hear from groups involved in the community empowerment process, and there will be experts on hand too, in what should be an exciting and important discussion on a new route to regenerating public assets across Scotland.
