Archaeology Scotland created this set of resources with: Archaeology Detectives Project Guide, plus activity plans and learning resources for 7 sessions. These can be freestanding, or they can be used together as part of a project:
- Exploring maps
- Using aerial photographs
- Using historic photographs
- Surveying your site

All the resources have been designed to support educators with no prior experience, and to require no specialist equipment.
