ScARF Skills Workshops

Throughout 2017 and 2018, ScARF will be hosting a programme of workshops for those working in archaeology and museums with the aim of encouraging collaboration and building on existing skills within the sector. The aim is to take the workshops across the country so that as many people as possible have the chance to build their skills and share their knowledge of best practice within archaeology. 

The first of these skills workshops will be part of a series related to the ‘lifecycle’ of archaeological objects. 

Workshop 1: Lithics

Applications for the workshop on the 13th March are now closed. Details of future workshops will be released in due course. 

Date: 13th March 2017

Location: National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh

The initial workshop will focus on Lithics and is aimed at anybody with an interest in Scottish lithics and stone tool technology, whether actively involved in fieldwork, project design, management, post excavation work or curatorial-related work. There will be talks and training by leading experts in the field of Scottish lithic studies including Torben Ballin, Julie Lochrie and Neil Curtis. There will also be opportunities for participants to discuss their own experiences in excavating or working with lithics as well as handle teaching collections and artefacts, all with the aim of sharing best practice in archaeological and museum settings.
