What’s The Story?

Archaeology is all about discovering and telling Scotland’s stories. By blurring the lines between eras and weaving legend into reality, John Felix has brought six archaeology-inspired stories together to create the intricate illustration below.

Each scene reflects one of the six Dig It! 2017 event themes: Adventurous, Delicious, Inspirational, Unscripted, Playful and Festival. The stories take us from Mesolithic Orkney to Victorian Edinburgh while celebrating Scotland’s past with a touch of pink.

We’ll reveal the stories behind the artwork at the end of January – or can you solve the mystery before it’s unearthed? Use #DigIt2017 to join the conversation!
