Scottish Archaeology Month
Scottish Archaeology Month (SAM) has been running for over 20 years, and acts as Scotland's contribution to European Heritage Days alongside Doors Open Days.
SAM encourages people to interact with their archaeology, history and heritage by coordinating and promoting a varied programme of events all across Scotland. These include guided walks, exhibitions, excavations, lectures, performances, re-enactments, traditional skills workshops, storytelling, guided tours, conferences and many other activities. SAM takes place every year in September but includes events running from the end of August until mid-October.
You can find SAM events, as well as places to visit all year round, on their website.
Scottish Archaeology Month is coordinated by Archaeology Scotland, you can learn more about their other projects here.
