Perthshire community pitches in to excavate Pictish longhouse

Residents of Perthshire, Scotland will have a unique opportunity in June 2013 to re-discover their own heritage when archaeologists will undertake the excavation of a Pictish longhouse. In addition to the chance to help in the dig, the project will include workshops, guided walks, presentations, and demonstrations.

The longhouse excavation is the highlight of Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust’s Archaeology Month, and is aimed at providing the community the chance to see experts in action or to get involved themselves.
