“Treasure Trove and a recent hoard from Peebles”

In June of this year, a metal detectorist uncovered one of the most significant Late Bronze Age hoards ever found in Scotland. Within days of the discovery, the Treasure Trove Unit were on site to excavate the hoard in situ.

We’ll discuss our first memories of archaeology - the places or objects that ignited our passion for the subject, and consider what our rubbish will tell archaeologists of the future about the way we live today. This will be a fun, informal, interactive session suitable for all ages.
