Working with schools
Archaeology for Schools was created during the Ben Lawers Historic Landscape Project 2002 - 2005. As a part of the project, four local schools worked with the Trust's archaeology and education staff, and also with archaeologists from Glasgow University. Under supervision, the pupils undertook surveying, excavation and recording work. They tested Would You Make a Good Archaeologist? as well as some of the traditional skills.

The excavations were taken very seriously by the pupils since they worked within the Project's designated area and, therefore, might find artefacts that had never been discovered before.

The schools were: Killin Primary School, Kenmore Primary School, Glenlyon Primary School and Breadalbane Academy.


Since then, whenever an excavation has taken place on a Trust site, the Trust's archaeologists try to include local schools, either through site visits or archaeological work. These include excavations at: Bannockburn, Culzean Country Park, Brodick Country Park, Crarae Garden, Inveresk Garden, Newhailes and Iona.
