Dr Sharon Webb, Director and Curator of the Kilmartin Museum, has been honoured in the New Year’s Honours List 2016 for services to heritage and archaeology in Scotland. The museum sites in the heart of an archaeologically rich landscape with numerous prehistoric monuments (e.g. Dunchraigaig Cairn; Kilmichael Glassary Rock Art; Temple Wood) as well as medieval (e.g. Keills Chapel; Sculptured Stones) and industrial (e.g. Crinan Canal) features. Webb has written an instructive guide to the area, In the Footsteps of Kings.

Heritage Futures would like to congratulate Sharon and the team at Kilmartin for this well-deserved award.
