Stories, Stones and Bones

As part of the Scotland-wide celebrations of the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017, we want to inspire people to get involved in learning about and enjoying their heritage for the first time.

Thousands of people will have the chance to get hands on with their local heritage as exciting new projects across Scotland open to the doors to discovery and fun thanks to funding from the National Lottery.

As a key partner to Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, HLF has invested £852,000 in 98 projects across the country.

As a key partner to Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, HLF has invested £852,000 in 98 projects across the country. From young people in the Highlands learning to build with turf, to Dundonians collecting memories, histories, poems and songs from their city. Focusing on reaching new audiences, over half the applications were from first time applicants.
