In touch with the past

Throughout human history, people have left traces of their activities behind. Archaeologists seek to uncover and interpret these remains to shed light on past communities ヨ but how is it done?

At the GUARD (Glasgow University Archaeological Research Division) Open Day on Saturday 20 September, you can try your hand at identifying sites and artefacts as a professional archaeologist would.

There will be experts on hand to guide you and encourage you to learn about and appreciate the wealth of information available from Scotland's historic environment.

As part of Scottish Archaeology Month, events are family orientated, appealing to both enthusiasts and professionals. All events are free of charge and offer a great opportunity for people of all ages to discover and explore their local heritage.

Date: Saturday 20th

Time: 10.00am - 4.00pm

Venue: Gregory Building, Lilybank Gardens, University of Glasgow
