Welcome to the blog of the Ulster-Scots Archaeological Project. This project relates to Ulster-Scots history, heritage and culture and understanding the impact that the Plantation had on the landscape, peoples, architecture and the historical legacies for the 21st-century’s communities in Northern Ireland. Follow our blog for updates on our excavation results and visitors to the site from the local community and schools!

Progress is slow but steady
Week Three starts with a cold snap in the air and a spring in our step! Cutting Five continues to look promising. Some post holes and spreads may be the only remaining pieces of a structure that possibly once stood here! Further excavation will hopefully tell us more.
Cutting Five may contain the remains of a structure!
Several volunteers have given up their time to help us excavate at Bangor. Hopefully the experience will be a rewarding one for them.
Some of the volunteers on site get stuck into Cutting Two
