The ScARF team is now starting to make plans for the next phase of the development of regional research frameworks across Scotland and is beginning to create plans for some new projects.

One of these regions, we are proposing for a new project, is west-central Scotland – or the Clyde Valley. This will comprise all the local authorities that surround the Clyde river catchment: East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Glasgow City, Inverclyde, North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, South Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire.

ScARF is currently working in collaboration with Northlight Heritage and the University of Glasgow to develop a project proposal to develop this new framework and we want to speak to as many people as possible to discuss issues, opportunities and proposed methodologies. In January, we held two online workshops with some key stakeholders in the region and would now like to open up discussions to anyone with an interest in the archaeology and heritage of the region and who has an interest in a new Clyde Valley Framework for the region.

An online open workshop to explain more about the proposed project and to gather some initial thoughts and ideas will be taking place on Wednesday 9th March between 13:00 – 15:30. The workshop will be led by Dr Helen Spencer (Society of Antiquaries of Scotland), Dr Gavin MacGregor (Northlight Heritage) and Dr Kenny Brophy (University of Glasgow).
