Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Following the formation of the Scottish Heritage Crime Group, Historic Environment Scotland has commissioned PAS to deliver a pilot national heritage project, Past Protectors. This project is designed to be a proactive way to promote awareness of heritage and heritage crime, and help young people have a say in heritage and crime issues affecting their community. This paper discusses one example from the pilot project, based at the heart of Neolithic Orkney world heritage site, where Stromness Academy worked with PAS and UHI Archaeology to explore the archaeology of their community, developed resources to help explain the pressures on this, and explore these issues with their peers and other audiences.

What did the young people suggest we could do to look after the world heritage site, and our everyday townscape? How do we encourage positive citizenship opportunities and reward participation in archaeology and heritage projects?
