What is Dig It! 2017?

Archaeology is for everyone.

Dig It! 2017 is the year-long celebration of Scottish archaeology with a packed programme of events from organisations across the country. It’s all about discovering Scotland’s past, present and future stories. Whether you’re getting muddy at a dig or strolling through a festival, now is the perfect time to let archaeology move you, surprise you and inspire you.

Dig It! 2017 is co-ordinated by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and Archaeology Scotland for the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology.

Choose your own adventure with the help of our six themes and find an event near you!

Dig It! 2017 is co-ordinated by two charities – the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and Archaeology Scotland. The Society promotes research into the past and Archaeology Scotland focuses on education, promotion and support of our archaeological heritage. We are supported by a range of partners, including local authorities, societies, universities, national agencies, societies, museums, and commercial companies. Historic Environment Scotland have provided funding support, and ‘Scotland in Six’ World Heritage Day events were funded through EventScotland’s Signature Events Fund.
