Monument Recording Sheet for Schools and Youth Groups

Step into the shoes (or should that be boots?) of an urban archaeologist with the Scotland's Urban Past Monument Recording Sheet.

What is a Monument Recording Sheet?

Archaeologists record sites and monuments in a specific way with key measurements and observations going towards their final description. However, it's not just about the facts and figures - archaeologists will also try to suggest what a site or monument might have been and how it could have been used, otherwise known as an 'interpretation.' 

Based on forms used by professional archaeologists this adapted recording sheet has all your bases covered with handy prompts and tips in an easy to use format. 

When you're finished why not upload your findings to the National Record of the Historic Environment, CANMORE through our crowd sourcing platform Urban Detectives.
