Archaeology Detectives

Explore a site using genuine archaeological skills, both within the classroom and onsite. 

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
  • Photographing your site
  • Sketching your site
  • Presenting your information

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

Completing an Archaeology Detectives project makes your group eligible for a Heritage Hero Award
