Finished final draft text for a new series of 'Archaeology Hotspot' guides for the Lomond Hills area in Fife today on behalf of the Living Lomonds. Had to go through quite a few format changes, but we've arrived at an accessible product we can all be happy with! A great wee addition to guided walks on archaeology in the area.

Spent a great morning at Portmoak Community Hall in Kinross-shire with volunteers from the Living Lomonds project finishing up sorting of post-medieval finds from last year's Lochore Castle excavation. Thanks to all the team for your dedicated help.

A great morning with Ninian Stuart and colleagues from the Falkland Centre for Stewardship at Falkland Estate discussing plans for site conservation and excavation at the remains of a medieval deer park pale. OJT Heritage will be directing geophysical surveys and community excavation around the deer park later in the year.

11th February 2016:

A bit of high-spec ground penetrating radar survey at Aberdeen Airport with our excellent collaborators at Atlas Geophysical Ltd. We managed to finish up good and early at 1am in the morning.

6th February 2016:

Its been a busy start to the year! Some great meetings with the nice folk at Living Lomonds Landscape Partnership in January to plan out this the final year of their exciting community archaeology programme (more on later!). Early in February though Dr Oliver O'Grady presented a talk with members of the Living Lomonds team at Kirkcaldy museum about the OJT Heritage-lead excavations at East Lomond Hillfort (2016) and Lochore Castle (2015). A well attended public event and thanks to the museum staff for a warm welcome all round. David Caldwell's talk on medieval seals was particularly interesting too.
