2016 is almost over, and what a year it’s been! We’ve launched a brand new website and corporate plan, laid on loads  of great events, welcomed record-breaking  numbers of visitors to our sites, and appointed our new chief executive – and that’s just a few of the HES highlights  of the past twelve months.

Have a look at the pictures that defined our 2016 #HESstory (click on the gallery below to see the full captions):

2017 will be the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology (#HHA2017) – a chance to celebrate Scotland’s unique historic environment. We’ll be running a range of activities, including a fantastic events programme with some brand new events, the launch of new research, and we’re also asking people to think about what heritage they care about with our ‘What’s Your Heritage?’ campaign.
