Vote for Current Archaeology's Research Project 2012
The uncovering of a massive Norse longhouse at Skara Brae in Orkney is the subject of a research project published in 'Current Archaeology' magazine by Dr David Griffiths, Director of Studies in Archaeology, and Dr Jane Harrison, our outreach officer on the East Oxford Community Archaeology project.
The work (and the subsequent article, entitled Settlement Under the Sand), is a contender for the magazine's 'Research Project of the Year 2012'.
