Friday fun in the ScARF office – part 1

Not even being the Day of Archaeology 2012 could bring the sunshine to Edinburgh today, so whilst the view from the office at the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland (SoAS), is definitely dreich, at least reading about all this archaeology will brighten up the day!

My name is Emma Jane O’Riordan and I am the Project Assistant for the Scottish Archaeological Research Framework (ScARF) or @scarfhub on Twitter. The project took part in the Day of Archaeology last year too so you can read about the background to the project in the 2011 posts from the Project Manager, Jeff Sanders here and here.

The Star Carr project gets visitors!

On Tuesday 26th of July the Star Carr project at the University of York got a visit from Dr Alice Roberts and a film crew from 360 production for the new series of the BBC’s Digging for Britain.

Alice talked to Nicky Milner (one of the project’s co-directors) and Ben Elliott (a Mesolithic antler-work specialist).

Project assistant, Pat Hadley tells the story of a great day learning about a brilliant site.
