HIGHLAND ARCHAEOLOGY FESTIVAL 2021
25 September – 15 October 2021
The festival is provided by the Highland Council and runs over 3 weeks each late September/October to celebrate the heritage of the Highlands from earliest settlers to modern times, below ground and above.
For 2021, Groam House presents a series of online activities focused on the museum’s superb Pictish sculpted stones that give an idea of the importance of Rosemarkie 1,250 years ago. Through their fabulous art and design the stones tell stories of the power of kings, church and saints. They speak of an early Christian monastery hidden under the village of Rosemarkie.
