Natasha Ferguson, Project Reveal Lead Inventory Officer at National Trust for Scotland, talks about the Trust’s extensive archaeology collections, which are part of an ongoing project to catalogue and photograph tens of thousands of artefacts held at its sites around the country

The big reveal

How were the archaeology collections of National Trust for Scotland established?

There are two ways the collections have built up. The first is through the excavation assemblages generated by the work of National Trust for Scotland (NTS) to research and conserve some 10,000 archaeological sites the Trust cares for. We also care for archaeological objects that have been collected by people over the years, particularly collectors who owned a historic property before it came into the care of NTS.
