Events launch

The archaeological past of one of Scotland’s most famous hills will be the focus of a new series of events launching this weekend.

Archaeologists from the University of Aberdeen are leading a project to unearth the secrets of Bennachie.

They hope their work funded by a grant of £20K from the Arts and Humanities Research Council will result in an exciting heritage project for the hill and landscape.

Budding archaeologists from the local community are being encouraged to get involved by attending a host of events taking place on the hill over the coming months.

For more information on these events, and how to get involved in the research contact Colin Shepherd,
