Pupils who enjoy the muddier side of historical research are being encouraged to take part in national archaeology week.

Museums, heritage sites, archaeological societies and other organisations will hold more than 400 events in Scotland, England and Wales from July 14 to 22.

Among the Scottish contributions will be a visit to Dundee Museum collections and the opportunity to take part in excavations at two prehistoric burial mounds in Dumfries and Galloway.

The week is being co-ordinated by the Council for British Archaeology.
