Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference- Aberdeen

Posted on January 20, 2017

Every year in Scotland there is a conference that is a bit unique in archaeology, professionals are not allowed to give papers… for the most part. All the presentations are by community members on heritage projects. There is a Minute of Mayhem when anyone can present a brief review of their work in under a minute in which professionals can participate in that. Also, some opening and closing talks are by professionals but for the most part it is a COMMUNITY heritage conference.

This year the organisers did something a little different and instead of having one large conference they had three smaller conferences all around Scotland. I videoed two of these conferences and below you can find the videos to the Aberdeen conference.
