Friends of the Falconer Museum

The Friends of the Falconer Museum’s 2018 Cluny Hill Dig was a highly successful community archaeological excavation on Cluny Hill Forres between 8th and 23rd September 2018. A team of 10 professional archaeologists supported 21 volunteers, providing experience and training in survey and recording methods. The project uncovered the remains of an Iron Age metal working site and possible trackway that may well have formed part of a larger settlement dating from the first millennium BC. While information will continue to emerge from post-excavational analysis, the hard work of the staff and volunteers has already begun to write a new chapter in the history of Forres.
