2005

As this is a community archaeology project, outreach was also an important element of the work. Articles on the project were published each week in the Shetland Times (see below). An open day was held on 22 August, and 80-100 people attended to see the work in progress and learn more about the project. Casual visitors also appeared on other days and were given tours and explanations of the fieldwork. Children from Uyeasound Primary School visited the site and subsequently produced a photographic display on the project. A reporter from Radio Shetland also visited and interviewed both staff and volunteers, and a feature on the project was aired on 27 August.

In October the BBC ran a feature on the site and the skeleton. The web page is archived and available to view at http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4370998.stm (opens in new window).
