Event description

Description

Come and join us as we mark Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017 with a 3-day celebration of Uist’s unique archaeology.

This 3 day conference is a unique opportunity, not only to attend talks given by some of the leading experts in their fields but to visit some of the historic sites in person.

This will be the first time that so many recognized experts in their fields have gathered together in Uist and it is a unique opportunity for islanders and academics to interact and learn from each other.
