Archaeology Scotland has been running a ‘Summer School’ since 1952 when it was established by what was then the Scottish group of the Council for British Archaeology. Each year we visit a different part of Scotland (and it has on occasion been south of the border).

The tour is led by experts in the field and aims to explore the local archaeology, history and heritage of a particular area. Combining informative field trip excursions and an evening lecture programme, it is also a fabulous way to socialise and share knowledge and experiences. The programme is distributed to our membership in the early Spring of each year.
