Dirty Weekend at Glengarnock Castle

This summer, with COVID restrictions easing, we're looking forward to getting back out into the project area and engaging with the amazing heritage that can be found there. We'll be kicking things off with a community focused archaeological weekend at Glengarnock Castle near Kilbirnie.

Why not join us, and our archaeology partners DigVentures, as we dig into Scotlands’s past on this unique archaeological excavation. You’ll learn about the powerful families who shaped much of North Ayrshire’s early history, and you’ll be helping to uncover some of the mysteries about Glengarnock Castle’s past that remain unanswered. There’ll be a chance to dig alongside our team of archaeologists, and you’ll have an opportunity to learn about archaeological techniques that go beyond digging to unearth new clues and insights into the history of the ruin.

Details of how you can get involved will be unveiled soon. In the meanitme keep and eye on our social media feeds and the DigVentures Garnock Connections Digital Dig page for updates.

Warning: This event may feature Simon waving swords about!

Dates: Saturday 10 – Sunday 11 July 2021 (with an optional welcome talk at 7pm on Friday 09 July)
Location: Glengarnock Castle, North Ayrshire, Scotland
