2016 Season Dates!

Wow, is it summer 2016 already? 

The REAP team are excited to be returning for another season of work at the Craw Stane (permissions pending).  We should be beginning work on site 15th of August for 2-3 weeks.  We've got lots of work to do and lots of exciting activities on site (and off...) in the planning. 

Some of you may have seen Rhynie featured on BBC's Digging for Britain Series 4 (North episode) http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b074hn34.  Alas, it is not available for viewing on iPlayer - but if you saw it make sure you tease Gordon!

Last year DipIn video also stopped by (alas Gordon was busy with other filming so I had to step up... although I like the classic Scottish archaeologist combination of sun hat and waterproof I'm sporting!). Rhynie is featured in the History & Heritage video http://www.dipinvideo.co.uk/videos/picts - watch the whole thing but Rhynie begins around 7 minutes in.

Looking forward to standing in the shadow of the Craw Stane soon.
