Yes its here, and ready to go... archaeology Month in Scotland.. :face-rain: known as ... you guessed it.

Scottish Archaeology Month! Big Grin

Scottish Archaeology Month (SAM) is one of Archaeology Scotland?s best loved initiatives. Through SAM, they aim to make the archaeology of Scotland as accessible as possible to the public through a programme of free events that celebrate Scotland?s archaeological heritage.

There are events for all ages and abilities and even a separate SAM for schools! programme.

This year events include medieval entertainments, stalls and stories at the ?Medieval Village?, Leven Prom and a chance for kids to join the Scottish Crannog Centre?s ?Underwater Time Team? and try out underwater archaeology in the mini tank, while the Principal Curator of Roman Archaeology at the National Museums will take a tour group around one of Scotland?s finest hillforts, Traprain Law. See our 2009 Events Guide for this year's highlights.

New events will be added to our online SAM Events Calendar throughout the summer.

Scottish Archaeology Month is the sister event of Doors Open Days (DOD), which gives you free access to hundreds of fascinating buildings across Scotland each September.

Together, SAM and DOD are Scotland?s contribution to European Heritage Days, which take place throughout Europe each September. SAM and DOD are supported by Historic Scotland.

I myself am doing three secret events Smile Wink

But if you want ... come along to the first at the lost chapel of Old Pentland (near Ikea Edinburgh) from 11am on Saturday 12th


This is a great time to be in Scotland and enjoying all the archaeology history and heritage we have to offer!
