The Scottish Archaeological Research Framework website

The Scottish Archaeological Research Framework (ScARF) reflects the current state of knowledge regarding Scotland’s past. As understanding of the past changes, so too will ScARF. It should be seen as a live document that will be constantly updated, edited and improved. The people developing ScARF are the people who use it: those who research Scotland’s past for enjoyment, employment, or frequently both.

ScARF is therefore not a routine publication as it is one that is revised from day one. It is also multi-authored and necessarily multi-disciplinary, reflecting the variety of approaches and people who conduct research into the past. ScARF is therefore subject to an ongoing process of review. The formulation of the framework required a considerable amount of work from across and beyond the Scottish heritage sector, and was therefore continually peer-reviewed during the process of creation. That work formed the basis for ScARF, and it is now open to everyone to review, improve and develop.


The ScARF website has undergone some maintenance this week, so if you spot any bugs that still need squished then please let us know using the contact form at the bottom of the website. Read more about the changes at http://www.scottishheritagehub.com/oct16update
