'Ava Beaker Burial Project'

Speaker: Maya Hoole (Historic Environment Scotland)

Tuesday 4th June, 7pm (doors open 6.40pm)

The Achavanich Beaker Burial Project focused on the archaeological remains of an individual who’s prehistoric burial was found in Caithness, Scotland, in 1987. This individual, who has become known as Ava (an abbreviation of Achavanich, where she was found), lived and died in Caithness 4,250 years ago. Join Project Manager, Maya Hoole, to find out how multiple institutions and researchers came together to carry out extensive research which has revealed remarkable insights into Ava’s life and death - a prehistoric woman whose reconstruction has captured the attention of archaeologists and news websites all over the world!
