Echoes in Stone: Creative Archaeological Visualisation on Scotland's National Forest Estate Exhibition

22 Jan ‘16


9.00AM - 5.00PM

Venue: Art Collection, Pathfoot Building, University of Stirling

Scotland has a long tradition of archaeological measured survey and remains in the vanguard of its visualisation and methodological development. By combining new archaeological survey techniques with an aesthetic illustrative methodology, we can produce detailed site records alongside innovative and spectacular illustrations, encouraging greater engagement and understanding. By commissioning archaeological measured surveys on Scotland’s National Forest Estate, Forestry Commission Scotland enables conservation management, condition monitoring and archaeological recording at our most significant historic assets. We also work with our stakeholders to use the Estate as a place for research and the development of best practice – and are proud to support Scotland’s Archaeology Strategy.

Any archaeologist seeking to influence the management of the historic environment will, at one time or another, need to convince others less enthusiastic about our shared past. Just as the environmental conservation lobby generates support for its wider work by focusing on charismatic megafauna, we can create interest in the practice of archaeology and demonstrate the value of our monuments via charismatic visualisation. In short, it is important to invest in great images to help sell our message.

This exhibition highlights the beauty of our Scottish surroundings in a new and unique way.

Please note that the Pathfoot Building and the Art Collection based in this building is open Monday to Friday only.
