A Celebration of Archaeology in Caithness.
There are more broch sites in Caithness than anywhere else in Scotland and yet there have been few recent explorations of these massive, tower like Iron Age structures. Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA), the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute and Caithness Broch Project teamed up to complete the exciting Caithness Broch Festival.
The Caithness Broch Festival itself was a year-long programme of heritage and archaeology projects for 2017 and 2018, focusing on exploring the broch sites of Caithness.
