This is a digital version of the archaeological exhibition displayed at the Hunterian Museum in Glasgow (3 September 2015 – 3 January 2016) and the Perth Museum and Art Gallery (2 February – 26 June 2016). The exhibition presented the dramatic discoveries made by the University of Glasgow’s Strathearn Environs and Royal Forteviot (SERF) research project from 2006 to 2011.
The Cradle of Scotland exhibition presented landscape surveys, large-scale excavation, and original artefacts alongside replicas and visualisations created to reveal a previously unknown archaeological story of Scotland’s heartland. The exhibit also highlighted the latest technical and methodological advances in Scottish archaeology.
There are two ways to navigate this virtual exhibit: as a visitor to the original exhibit at the Hunterian Museum or by selecting themes of method or period.
