Open Days and Lectures

Throughout the year HARP run a series of open days and lectures related to our field schools and archaeology projects. Information on upcoming events are detailed below. If you would like more information, or would like us to either take part in your event or provide a talk or lecture please contact us.

Sunday 17th June - Guided Tour of the Jacobite, Clearance and Scots!
We will be returning to Highland Perthshire this coming June to continue our field survey of General Wade's Military Roads in the region and aim to record all visible archaeological remains along these routes. Join us  for an afternoon tour of archaeological sites near Blair Atholl associated with the ‘Jacobites, Clearance and Scots’ project. Guided by two professional archaeologists, this minibus tour will give insight into traces of the 18th century landscape and archaeology, still visible today including sections of General Wade’s Military Road, built in response to the threat of the Jacobites, and evidence of abandoned settlements from the Highland Clearances, the result of enforced social upheaval and economic change following the Jacobite Uprisings.
