A brand new 10 year Archaeology Strategy for Scotland was launched at Europe’s biggest archaeology conference in Glasgow today (European Archaeological Association).

Scotland’s Archaeology Strategy has been developed by the Scottish Strategic Archaeology Committee, coordinated by Historic Scotland, with input from over 200 people from across the archaeology sector in Scotland and beyond. It sets out a shared national vision that Scotland’s archaeology should benefit everyone in society.

It complements work that has been undertaken over the past few years by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, as part of the ScARF (Scotland’s Archaeological Research Framework), and puts in place a framework for the new national heritage organisation, Historic Environment Scotland, to support archaeology as an integral part of our lived and natural environment.
