Whether you’re into medieval brewing or sporting heritage, there’s something for everyone in November: 

The Community Heritage Conference (10 & 11 November, Glasgow) has been given a boost for 2017, so expect even more inspiring stories from Scotland and beyond. Participants can step into the world of Wikipedia, try to keep up with One Minute Mayhem or learn how to engage a younger audience ahead of the Year of Young People 2018.

Inner Forth – New Connections for Nature, History and People (11 November, Stirling) will welcome those who are fascinated by the area’s history and wildlife. Highlights include the investigation of a park in Grangemouth and the hunt for a royal dockyard in Airth.

East Lomond Hillfort in Context (11 November, Fife) is promising a programme of talks by leading hillfort specialists, where you can “reconsider” Roman Iron Age Fife and explore the age-old question: “Is that a fort on yonder hill?”.

To round off the month, head to the Edinburgh, Lothians and Borders Archaeology Conference (18 November, East Lothian) for first-hand accounts of archaeological fieldwork and research that will cover topics such as prehistoric “odd places” and a medieval tannery.
