We are proud to announce that we were awarded The Explorers Club Flag for our second expedition to North Uist and the Isle of Vallay. Previously we published our field research on 18 of the original 225 archaeology sites first discovered by 19th cen. archaeologist, Erskine Beveridge, on the Isle of Vallay, Scotland, and reported the impact of climate change upon them.
In June 2017, we extended our survey to include additional Beveridge sites on the NW coast of North Uist, located directly across the Vallay Strand. Our continuing research objective was to record the critical loss of Coastal Heritage due to climate change - the increasing severity of storms, rising sea levels, and subsequent erosion of archaeological evidence. This project has implications for the loss of coastal heritage worldwide.
