Science in Scottish archaeology: realising the vision

March 2014: The Science panel of the Scottish Archaeological Research Framework (ScARF) set out an exciting vision for science in Scottish archaeology. The ambition is for archaeological science in Scotland to be a world-leader, achieved through partnership and collaboration, and building on existing strengths and expertise. The vision outlines the need to increase scientific research capacity in Scotland, create a network of specialists willing to work together, and hold workshops addressing ‘hot-spot’ areas of archaeological science. We are now working collaboratively on steps towards realising this vision.
