Rockfield spotlight on how to ‘read’ buildings
THE ROCKFIELD Centre is hosting an Archaeology Scotland workshop on September 16 at the huts entitled ‘Reading the Rockfield Buildings - introduction to archaeological recording.’
There will be two sessions – the afternoon one runs from 1-3pm and the evening session from 6.30- 8pm.
Cara Jones, workshop co- ordinator, said: ‘These sessions will introduce key themes of how to ‘read’ buildings, to notice changes and record them archaeologically. Have you ever looked at a building and wondered what wall dates to when? Or have you heard stories about a building and wondered if you can see any physical evidence of it?
‘Would you like to learn how to research the history of a building? ‘
These and many other questions will be the core of the workshop content.
Delivered by Archaeology Scotland, this workshop is part of the Adopt-a-Monument road show - a week long project which will provide free and ‘open to all’ training to a variety of communities throughout Scotland.
Cara added: ‘We will provide all the equipment - you just need to turn up.’
