HARP worked with the Hume Castle Preservation Trust on a suite archaeological works focussed on Hume Castle and its surrounding landscape between Summer 2018 and Spring 2022. 

The project engaged with over 350 members of the public and provided training opportunities in historical research, digital illustration, archaeological excavation, historic building recording, graveyard survey, geophysical survey, monument identification and recording, and provided an opportunity for local volunteers to engage with heritage in new ways through craft.

The project was generously funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Fallago Environment Fund

Full details on the project can be found at the dedicated project website here, and if you would like to view, or download any of the reports from the project please click here.
