Creative Archaeology - Finding the Present in the Past

 

*Watch the video*

 

Scottish Archaeology Month @ScotArchMonth

Hosted by Archaeology Scotland 

In this free online event, Thomas Legendre discusses how prehistoric landscapes, as well as archaeology itself, can be understood imaginatively and "actively" without losing sight of key details, evidence, and established features of archaeological sites. 

 

How do these places become "personal" to us?

 

How does the past become present, and the present past?

 

We travel to Kilmartin Glen to explore the recreative process in both fact and fiction. It includes a short reading from Keeping Time, a bit of music, and some open discussion.
