Ardnamurchan Transitions Team's Visit

The Ardnamurchan Transitions team, the archaeologists who discovered the Viking boat burial at Swordle Farm in 2011, are back again this summer from 20th July until 9th August.  They will be holding a number of public events, including open days on Sunday 27th July and Sunday 3rd August.  They are also hoping to do a public talk.  Details of events will follow.

This year they will be accepting some local volunteers to work on the digs with them.  Anyone interested should contact Ollie Harris, ojth1@leicester.ac.uk, or Hannah Cobb, Hannah.Cobb@Manchester.ac.uk.

Conserved finds from the boat burial are currently part of the British Museum Vikings exhibition.
