Edinburgh, Lothians & Borders Archaeology Conference 2019!
Well folks, it is that time of year again! The leaves are turning wonderful shades of gold, russet and sunset orange; the geese are squawking and honking in their raggedy V’s overhead, there is a fresh chill in the air, lacing the spider webs with early morning frost.
Whilst the last vestiges of summer are still hanging on in our wonderful parks and gardens, and our memories of another successful East Lothian Archaeology and Local History Fortnight still linger in our minds, the changing of the seasons also allows us to look forward to what is next. And for us at the Archaeology Service, as we crunch through leaves on our way to work, and look out onto autumn skies across Haddington, we are looking forward to the annual Edinburgh, Lothians & Borders Archaeology Conference 2019!
We’ve got another jam-packed programme this year (yes, it’s also time for making jams and chutneys everyone!), full of exciting talks about the latest excavations and projects from this year, as well as continuing updates and the results of long term projects.
Who doesn’t want to hear about cursus and pit alignments in East Lothian, lost villages in Bunkle and bridges in Ancrum, the past lives of Leith and the origins of the Cowgate? What about grand buildings such as Panmure House and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, or the Borders landscape of the Whiteadder? And the final slice of pumpkin pie? Community archaeology and training at Black Bull Close.
So if you want to cosy up with a hot drink, some good company and some marvellous mind-expanding archaeology, please do come and join us for the Conference on Saturday the 16th November at Queen Margaret University in Musselburgh.
You can find the full programme and details of how to book here: https://www.eastlothian.gov.uk/info/210596/archaeology/12109/archaeology_whats_on/2
Alternatively, Conference tickets are available on the day (although lunch must be pre-booked)
We hope to see you all there!
