The Scottish Archaeology Strategy– which was the first national Archaeology Strategy in Europe when it launched in 2015 – aims to make archaeology matter for everyone in Scotland. Key areas are; delivering archaeology, enhancing understanding, caring and protecting, encouraging greater engagement and championing innovation and skills.

Scotland’s Strategic Archaeology Committee (SSAC), which is made up from professionals and interested people from across the heritage sector to lead the Strategy, is celebrating five years of world-leading archaeology from Scotland.

Dr Andy Heald, Chair of the SSAC and Managing Director of AOC Archaeology (FAME member) had this to say about it:

“It has been fantastic to be involved in this sector-wide partnership, with representatives from the commercial, public and third sectors. We are half-way through this journey now and there will be lots more exciting work happening in the coming five years.”
