Also running in September as part of European Heritage Days is 'Scottish Archaeology Month'.
Scottish Archaeology Month is coordinated by Archaeology Scotland and celebrates Scotland's rich archaeological heritage through a diverse programme of free events held all over the country.
Taking place every September, it aims to make archaeology more accessible to the wider public and to encourage awareness, understanding and appreciation of the nation's archaeology.
The full programme for Scottish Archaeology Month will be available at archaeologyscotland.org.uk/projects/scottish-archaeology-month/ Programmes are also available from public libraries, visitor attractions and tourist information centres.
All events are free, but some require prior booking.
Archaeology Scotland is a voluntary membership organisation that works to secure the archaeological heritage of Scotland for its people through education, promotion and support. It brings together those for whom archaeology is an interest, an active pastime or a career. It supports local archaeological action and initiatives and offers a comprehensive information service.
