Week 8 - It all started in a carpark

Archaeology in car parks is very fashionable these days!  My week started with a visit to Cumnock - to this car park where you can see foundations poking through the tarmac of an old Inn which stood on the site.  If you google it you find it's haunted!  Jesting aside, I'm very excited about our new project "Cumnock Digs It" - which, as well as re-claiming a central space in the town for temporary community use, will get local 16-25 year olds into archaeology and learning new skills, to help them on the path to positive futures!

The rest of the week holds more excitement in store - when Northlight Archaeology hits the Govan Fair - the oldest procession in Glasgow http://thegovanfair.org/?page_id=238

But before that kicks off I wanted to make sure you all listen to BBC Radio Scotland's Out of Doors programme on Saturday, because their very own Mark Stephen came to the Hidden Heritage Dig last week to interview us about the project
