Key findings from an analysis of the human remains from Portmahomack and insights into the lives of the Pictish and medieval communities.

The speaker is Shirley Curtis-Summers, Lecturer in Archaeological and Forensic Sciences and Programme Lead for MSc Human Osteology and Palaeopathology at the University of Bradford.

Shirley specialises in human osteology and stable isotope analysis with a particular focus on medieval Scotland. She has studied the Portmahomack skeletal assemblage to reconstruct aspects of past diet, disease and trauma, and most recently has worked with the cold case Whithorn team to investigate diet and mobility in early-medieval Whithorn.

Opening times

Open daily from 1pm to 4pm.

To reduce congestion in the museum and enable us to offer a personal greeting to all our visitors, we are encouraging people to stagger their entry times - so you can book on line in 15-minute slots. You can spend as long as you like in the museum, but by staggering entry times, it means we can offer everyone a short introduction to our exhibitions.
