Regional Research Frameworks

This is where you will be able to access all of the Regional Archaeological Research Frameworks as they become available from Summer 2017 onwards.

Scottish Frameworks currently underway: 

These frameworks have been funded by Historic Environment Scotland through ScARF. They will be available as part of ScARF and will tie into the national framework.  

  • Regional Archaeological Research Framework for Argyll (RARFA). Covers the local authority area of Argyll and Bute. Led by Kilmartin Museum. Started November 2015 and due to be available late Summer 2017.
  • South East Scotland Archaeological Research Framework (SESARF). Covers the local authority areas of the City of Edinburgh, East Lothian, West Lothian and the Scottish Borders. Led by the South East Scotland Archaeology Partnership (SESAP, namely East Lothian Council, City of Edinburgh Council, and Scottish Borders Council) and project managed by Wessex Archaeology Scotland. Began in June 2017 and due to complete by June 2019. 

The following frameworks are not part of ScARF in the same way as those above, but are essential reading for their respective areas and ScARF will endeavour to tie into them where possible.
