Inverkeithing Community Burgh Survey

In 2020 and 2021 Inverkeithing’s community will be invited to share a journey of exploration of the fascinating history and archaeology of the Burgh. A Burgh Survey, resulting in a formal published volume, will have four main strands.

There are opportunities for people to volunteer, learn, contribute and participate in four key areas of activity:

  • Archaeological Excavations – take part in a dig on your doorstep! Help uncover and analyse what past residents of Inverkeithing left behind, hid or flung away.
  • Archive Research – document detectives, learn how to access and use historic documents and maps to reveal Inverkeithing’s most important stories.
  • Standing Building Surveys – learn how to read buildings, understand the significance of built evidence, and help record the Town House and Friary buildings.
  • Oral Histories – help collect and preserve memories of Inverkeithing’s places and people.

All activities are free and participants will be trained and supported by specialists in how to successfully contribute.  Volunteers can register for one or more projects, and don’t need any prior experience or special skills. 

The results of the activities will help to find the voice of Inverkeithing people in the past, and give an authentic voice to past and present and contribute to plans for its future through Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration.  The overall results will be combined to produce the Inverkeithing Burgh Survey book, providing an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the archaeology, heritage and historic environment of the town.

Northlight Heritage will be delivering the Burgh Survey project, and the four activities, alongside Fife Historic Buildings Trust and Fife Council, as part of Inverkeithing Heritage Regeneration.
