Fieldwork Division

The Fieldwork Division was started in 2015 to provide opportunities for members to take a more active role in local history. The group is open to all Abertay Historical Society members.

Since forming we have undertaken a series of projects, including recording surviving stones from Dundee’s Royal Arch, producing a publication on the Arch, and joining Friends of Balgay Park to record stones from the Rose Window at Dundee’s Old Steeple which are now at Balgay Hill. Our biggest project has been working with Archaeology Scotland’s Adopt a Monument on a survey of Market Knowe, in Huntly Wood near Longforgan. Read the final report here:

We have also recently completed recording the worked stones from the Rose Window at Balgay Hill. Read the report here:
