The village of Rhynie in Aberdeenshire lies in an area rich in archaeology. In 2011 the Rhynie Environs Archaeological Project (REAP) began investigating features surrounding the Craw Stane, a Class I Pictish symbol stone which stands in the fields to the south of the village. This film offers a glimpse into the current interpretations of this complex and highly significant site.

Visit the REAP blog (reaparch.blogspot.co.uk) and join Northern Picts on Facebook (facebook.com/groups/NorthernPicts/) to keep up to date with the project.

The film was commissioned by the University of Aberdeen and kindly grand supported by Historic Environment Scotland.

With special thanks to Dr Gordon Noble (University of Aberdeen), Dr Meggen Gondek (University of Chester), Rhynie Women: Daisy Williamson and Hayley Keane, AOC Archaeology and Aberdeenshire Council Archaeology Service.
