Archiving Scotland's rock art for the future

Frederick Alexander joined the Scotland's Rock Art Project team as a digital archivist in 2021. His goal is to archive the project data in the Historic Environment Scotland digital repository. In this blog post Frederick outlines his approach, the importance of archiving project data, and how the archive can be accessed in the future.

Picking up the Pieces – Dalreoich, Strath Rusdale

Since they were carved in the Neolithic or Bronze age, many panels have been lost, moved, damaged in various ways, or even destroyed.  Recent damage is especially sad, but in some cases we may be able to find out more about the recent history of the panel and improve the record we make.  Aware of both moved and damaged panels at Dalreoich in Strath Rusdale, a NOSAS group did some research and then made a visit to find out what could be recorded. Dalreoich is about 10km NW from the Cromarty Firth at Alness.
