Surveying The Hagg Site
Last Sunday a team of dedicated SWAAG volunteer surveyors braved the icy winds on The Hagg, ahead of this year's dig. Resistivity and Magnetometry kit was deployed with the aim of investigating potentially new areas of settlement on the site.

Digging commences on July 10th for two weeks and although the list of diggers is almost full, there are still a few places left. Anyone interested in joining us (equipment and training are provided) should email for further details.

SWAAG 10 year celebration (and AGM)
An impressive turnout for last night's meeting in the Buck. This included the AGM and, more importantly, a celebration to mark 10 years of SWAAG's existence. David entertained us with a number of slides and a talk about the group's activities over the last decade and gave thanks to the many people who have helped along the way and made SWAAG what it is today. Tim, Peter and Alan (the founding fathers) reminisced about the group's many achievements, and also talked about the possible future direction of the group. Thanks to the staff at The Buck for the pie and pea supper, and a big thanks to Delyth for baking not just one, but three delicious birthday cakes!
An impressive turnout for the AGM 10 years on and Alan, Peter and Tim don't look a day older.
