The Hidden Project believes that interpreting the results of its investigations is extremely important.

We want as many people as possible to be able to access our information. We have therefore tried to use lots of different ways to engage all kinds of people in heritage and our landscape. Interpretation activities have included:

  • Living history culture workshops with Glasgow Vikings
  • Living history and rural skills demonstrations with Clanscape
  • An excavation Open Day
  • Creative drama with the Scottish Youth Theatre
  • Creative writing with poet Alistair Paterson
  • Landscape painting with Janet Stanton
  • Fiddle playing with Helen Reid-Foster
  • Mosaic workshop with Dugald MacInnes
  • Community drumming with Anne Evans
  • Traditional boat building with the GalGael Trust
  • Archaeological excavation with Northlight Heritage
  • Crafts: Making model Viking boats, Lewis chessmen, runic writing
  • Visual arts: film-making and photography
  • Creating a tapestry depicting heritage events across the isthmus
  • Helping children to participate in the Battle of Largs Festival
  • Providing experimental archaeology demonstrations of boat dragging, flint knapping, creating burnt mounds, dry stone walling and woad dyeing
  • Creation of a Heritage Trail with interpretation panels
