The dates for next year’s excavation – the final season of fieldwork at the Ness – have been set.
Provided our fundraising plans come together, diggers will be back on site from Monday, June 24, until Friday, August 23, 2024.
The nine-week excavation will be open to the public on weekdays between Wednesday, June 26 and Friday, August 16. At present, guided site tours are pencilled in for Monday to Friday at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
The open day is scheduled for Sunday, July 28, 2024.
Due to the complex nature of the archaeology, we won’t be taking volunteers in 2024, unless they have previous experience working at the Ness.
