STRONSAY ARCHAEOLOGICAL SURVEY UHI Archaeology Institute is re-convening the Stronsay Archaeological Survey in April 2024, after a 17 year hiatus, under the leadership of Dr Ben Elliott. We will be restarting fieldwalking activities on an annual basis, aiming to cover as much ploughed land as possible to find material evidence of past lives in Stronsay. Fieldwalking is an accessible way to identify and record the archaeology brought to the surface by the plough, and can help us to better understand the distributions of lots of different kinds of artefacts and activities across an entire landscape. If you are happy spending the day outdoors, walking fields, and adding to our knowledge of Stronsay’s history, then this could well be for you! Fieldwalking will take place on Monday April 15th and Thursday April 18th, from 10.00-17.00. If you are interested in being involved in this, please contact Ben in advance via email:, and he can give you the full details of where to meet and what to expect. All welcome.
