Archaeological excavations at Dunragit nominated for an award

GUARD Archaeology’s work exposing the heart of prehistoric Galloway has been nominated for Rescue Project of the Year in the 2022 Current Archaeology Awards!

Road to the past: exploring the prehistoric heart of Galloway is an account of our excavations of a range of Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age sites in advance of the Dunragit bypass. This work revealed around 8,000 years of human activity within a rich and complex historic landscape on the south-west coast of Scotland.

Voting for the awards opens today and will close on 7 February 2022 – the results will be announced on Current Archaeology’s Youtube channel on the evening of Friday 25 February 2022.
