Recent Archaeological Discoveries and Research Conference
The annual conference highlights recent work on archaeology and heritage of the Highlands, and allows you to browse displays from local groups and organisations.
Highland Council Chamber, Council Headquarters, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness
12th-13th October 2019
See below, the Events Calendar or download information and programme from the Document Library in the 2019 folder. The panel discussion this year will focus on designations for sites, buildings and battlefields– are they helpful or not?
Displays and Poster Sessions
This year we again have an extended lunch break to allow time for poster sessions at some of the many displays (details will be provided on registration). These allow groups to briefly showcase projects they have been involved in. Displays are offered by museums, heritage groups, archaeological units and some national organistions, providing a chance to meet and chat with people involved in Highland heritage.
