Camas nan Geall Community Archaeology

April 22 @ 10:00 am - May 4 @ 4:00 pm

Week 1: Friday 22/4/22 – Tuesday 26/4/22
Week 2: Friday 29/4/22 – Wednesday 4/5/22

Join us for some exciting archaeological activity at the stunning location of Camas nan Geall on the Ardnamurchan peninsula.

Although plans are fairly fluid, we are aiming to focus on the Medieval/Iron Age archaeology of the bay in this next phase, before looking at earlier prehistoric archaeology later in the year, so we’ll be carrying out archaeological excavation and an archaeological survey.

We are out in the field every day between and including the dates above, except the following:
Wednesday 27th April
Thursday 28th April

Absolutely everyone is welcome, no experience necessary, full training provided. There will be space for up to 12 volunteers per day – so “booking” is essential, though of course, it is free.
Please use this form to book.

Activity will take place between 10am and 4pm each day. You can attend for part of a day, or as many days as you can (space permitting).

It should be noted that the site is difficult to access, and the first two days, and the last day, will involve lots of physical activity so participants with access issues should consider volunteering on the last three days of the first week and the first three days of the second week.

Please ensure you dress for the weather, and wear appropriate footwear. There is no shop nearby so please bring a packed lunch and enough refreshments / water.

If you have any questions, please email: ardnamurchan@archaeologyscotland.org.uk

Take a look at what we got up to in September!
