Stories, Stones and Bones
Stories, Stones and Bones is a community education programme that is currently delivering a range of activities into schools sharing local traditions, culture, and history. The project engages primary school aged children with historians, artists and archaeologists who lead field trips exploring the world class archaeology and historical sites of north Skye. The children engage with artists, poets and writers in class-room activities to create their own interpretations of the their newly discovered knowledge. Their completed works will be presented to the local historical group, in a booklet and community exhibition at the project’s conclusion. The programme aims to inspire the children and to create a sense of community identity and belonging.
