  • Some good news from Aberdeen

    The network is pleased to report on some very good news.

    Gordon Noble has received a Leverhulme Research Leadership Award for £971,149 (€1.15m) to investigate the early kingdoms of Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

    The project will run for five years and will enable Gordon and the team to undertake new investigations at sites such as Ryhnie. It will also allow the evidence for royal residences to be compared across the British Isles and beyond.

    On the scope of the project Gordon said: “We will bring together experts in archaeology, history, place-name studies and paleoecology to build a much fuller picture of these kingdoms. The project involves scholars from a range of fields which should give us an unprecedented opportunity to understand how these early kingdoms were created, developed and were ultimately transformed.

    Congratulations Gordon!
