Main contact: Professor Stephen Driscoll
Start date: 2007
Archaeology - School of Humanities, College of Arts
After an initial season of geophysical survey, archaeological excavations at Forteviot by SERF began in 2007, when elements of the prehistoric ceremonial complex and Pictish cemetery were explored. Since 2007 there has also been a programme of investigation in and around the modern village of Forteviot in search of the Pictish palace.
The results of these excavations have allowed us to progress our understanding of the chronology and development of the landscape of Forteviot, revealing the character of a variety of monuments and some unexpected but spectacular discoveries.
