Over the duration of the project three key sites will be selected for detailed survey and archaeological excavation. It is hoped that the community and local schools will be involved throughout the project. The project will aim to raise awareness of Ulster-Scots history, heritage and culture; educate young people, students, locals and visitors in Ulster-Scots history and the impact of the Plantation period, and promote cross-community sharing, tolerance and social inclusion. The results will ultimately be shared through a combination of publications and community outreach. This project is being funded by the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure.
