The Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site Research Agenda

Front cover of The Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site: Research Agenda

The 2005 HONO WHS Research Agenda aimed to lead to an improved understanding of the WHS and its setting. Taking a thematic approach, it defined the scope of research around the WHS; outlined the potential of the area to answer research questions; identified gaps in knowledge; encouraged inter-disciplinary research into a broad spectrum of topics within the WHS area and its wider context, research contributing to enhanced management, preservation, conservation and interpretation, and research with wider methodological and/or theoretical applications. In 2013 a revised Research Strategy for HONO WHS was produced. This 2013-18 strategy was designed to be used alongside the 2005 Research Agenda.
