Course in Foreshore and Underwater Archaeology
- 15 — 17 August 2014
This three day course offers the chance to learn more about the practices and principles of maritime archaeology. It is aimed at both divers and non-divers, people working in the fishing industry, researchers, students, and others interested in heritage.
The course will include a practical element open to both divers and non-divers, involving the completion of a survey of a site at the Churchill Barriers. In this participants will directly contribute to the ongoing monitoring of wartime remains in Scapa Flow.

Trek Through Time on the John Muir Way

Join us for an archaeologist led sponsored walk through the beautiful East Lothian countryside. We will be walking 5 or 10 miles (your choice) from West Barns, Dunbar to East Linton (and back if you want) along the John Muir Way, taking in the WWI and WWII remains, an abandoned racecourse and golf course, visible agriculture improvements, sites of cist burials and roundhouses, the fabulous Preston Mill, historic Prestonkirk and more.
Start at Linkfield car park for John Muir Country Park
Registration for the walk is £10 for adults and we hope each participant can raise around £50 to help us continue our valuable work.
