Exploring Eddleston
with the
Peeblesshire Archaeological Society

Recording new finds. We record the exact location of our discoveries using a hand-held global positioning system.

 Who are we?

The Peeblesshire Archaeological Society was formed in 1994 by local people interested in history and archaeology.


Our members are drawn from across Tweeddale.

Research into old finds. Postcard printed after the discovery of a large bronze cauldron on Hattonknowe Farm in 1904. The vessel is now known to date from around 1000 BC. Scottish Borders Archive.


What do we do?

We arrange talks on a wide range of topics. We run field trips and visits to archaeological sites. We organise activity days for schoolchildren.

Finding new sites. Fieldwalking involves the careful inspection of fields after ploughing. Finds of artefacts provide clues to human activity at different times in the past.



We also carry out fieldwork. This exhibition is about our latest project - an archaeological survey of Eddleston parish.

Have a look round the exhibition pages and the rest of the site to find out more about our activities!

Time for a break!
