You can listen to the Radio Orkney report about Swandro broadcast on the 22nd July 2016

 

The Swandro excavation has featured on the Orkneyjar website, and the articles may be read online:

Excavation Reports

 

Since the site is still under excavation the final publication is still some way off. An interim report or data structure report is produced each year, together with research objectives for the coming season. Some of these may be downloaded as pdfs by clicking the links below:

 

Swandro 2016 Data Structure Report

 

Orkney Gateway to the Atlantic: 2010 Interim report No. 1

 

Swandro 2013 Data Structure Report

 

Video of the excavation

 

A series of short videos about the excavation were produced in 2011 and are well worth watching.

 

Dig Diary

 

We have a dig diary which when we're in the field will keep you updated with everything that's happening in a (hopefully!) entertaining manner, when we're not digging we'll be posting background information and useful links.

 

Finally, here is a lecture podcast by the Chair of the Trust, Dr. Steve Dockrill presented at the 2015 European Association of Archaeologists annual conference in Glasgow 2015.
