It has been an exciting weekend for us in Orkney as we have welcomed over 65 delegates from all over the world to join us at 2016’s CHAT (Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory) conference. It has been great to catch up with old friends and meet new ones!
This year’s theme is RURALITY and after a wonderful fieldtrip yesterday we have been enjoying a diverse selection of papers on the subject, in its broadest sense. We also have films, art installations and sampled some wonderful Orkney drinks courtesy of Scapa Whisky, Kirkjuvagr Gin and Swannay Brewery. And we still have the rest of the weekend to go!
