Archaeologist, Murray Cook, will be running a series of training digs on behalf of Stirling Council. For those interested in trying archaeology for a day, the council is offering a series of free digs across the year.
Projects will include the exploration of a 17th Century Designed landscape and Medieval hollow ways (sunken lanes) in Killearn, the excavation of a Victorian gatehouse and World War Two Practice Trenches in Plean, and the continued excavation of an Early Medieval vitrified fort (where the stone was melted into glass) at Abbey Craig.
Dates are already confirmed in May, June and September and it is likely more are to follow. Participants must be aged 17 or over unless accompanied by an adult. Places are limited so must be booked in advance, but visitors are welcome to come and view the fieldwork at any time.
