BUMPER PROGRAMME FOR 2005
HIGHLAND ARCHAEOLOGY FORTNIGHT
The festival, which celebrates the archaeology, history and culture of the Highlands, is now in its 12th year with a packed programme of guided walks, talks and special events for people of all ages to enjoy.
Co-ordinated by The Highland Council's Archaeology Unit, the festival's events are organised by a wide range of community groups, interested individuals, museums and professional bodies such as Historic Scotland, Forestry Commission Scotland and the National Trust for Scotland.
Events this year include:
As a grand finale to Highland Archaeology Fortnight, a seminar, "What's New in Highland Archaeology", will be held at the Ramada Jarvis Hotel, Church Street, Inverness on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th October. The event is free and members of the public are invited to come along and find out about the recent archaeological discoveries and research in the Highlands.
Dorothy Maxwell, Projects Asset and Archaeology Manager with The Highland Council's Planning and Development Service said: "No matter what your level of knowledge of Highland archaeology is - whether you are a complete beginner or a keen expert - this programme has something for you to enjoy. Event organisers all over the Highlands have, as usual, put in a great deal of imagination and effort in putting together events, and we would like to thank them for their continued support."
