Today Durham University has announced the decisions that have been taken regarding where the remains of the Scottish Soldiers will be reburied once our research project has finished, and how they will be commemorated.
To find out more about this please see the Scottish Soldiers Archaeology Project web pages.
Our next research blog will be published on Friday 26 August and will focus on palaeopathology and scurvy.
