AIA AGM + Anstruther Burgh Survey project discussion

The AIA’s AGM will be held at Dreel Halls on Thursday 31st August 2017 at 6.30pm. Please come along to hear what the committee has been busy getting up to in the past year, and plans for the future.

Following on from the AIA’s AGM, at approximately 7pm, we will welcome the team that led the Anstruther Burgh Survey, a year-long project involving the Anstruther, Kilrenny and Cellardyke community. They will be available to discuss the project in depth and answer any questions, and will launch the book that has been published to mark the project, which will be available to buy.

The project enabled volunteers to discover and engage with their heritage, exploring the origins and evolution of the burghs through archaeology and historical research. It was part of the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Townscape Heritage Initiative and Historic Environment Scotland’s Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme, led by Fife Council in partnership with Fife Historic Buildings Trust. The survey was delivered by Rathmell Archaeology Ltd, who provided support for the individual volunteer and community archaeology projects.
