Welcome to the first ScARF Newsletter
The best way to keep up to date with News and Events from the Scottish Archaeological Research Framework.
ScARF is Three!
The ScARF website (www.scottishheritagehub.com) launched just over three years ago. Readership has been growing ever since and with plans to add more archaeological content in the near future, we expect it to continue to grow.
If you'd like to be involved in creating new content or have an idea for future research, then please get in touch.
ScARF Student Network
Students are integral to the future of archaeological research in Scotland - the work they are doing now is vital to filling in the gaps in current knowledge.
ScARF is setting up a student network to help foster collaboration and provide advice and guidance on research topics as well as running workshops and events to help get future archaeological careers off the ground. We are also on the lookout for student volunteers to help get new archaeological information into ScARF - we were lucky enough to have our first lot of student scribes at the Archaeology of Cramond conference on the 3rd of October.Their notes will be on the ScARF website soon.
This annual conference provides an important opportunity to hear and discuss first hand accounts of the archaeological fieldwork and research being undertaken in Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian, and the Scottish Borders.
We are putting together a Careers in Archaeology event in the future, focusing on real life experiences and pathways people have trodden to get to where they are. If you or your organisation would be interested in taking part, please let us know.
ScARF will be at the next 'Future Thinking on Carved Stones in Scotland' event at the end of October. This is the last in a series of workshops about the future of research into carved stones in Scotland and will hopefully help to build a ScARF style framework.
