The Book of Deer Project: dig and exhibition 2022

Something really exciting is happening in the North East of Scotland in the summer of 2022! The Book of Deer is being exhibited in Aberdeen on a three month loan from the University of Cambridge. The Book of Deer Project is celebrating its return via a series of community events, including another archaeological dig at the Abbey of Deer. But we need your help to make this happen! Any donations, large or small are very welcome.       

The Book of Deer is a tenth century illuminated manuscript from North East Scotland. Amid the Latin text and the Celtic illuminations there can be found the oldest pieces of Gaelic writing to have survived from Early Medieval Scotland. These were written in a monastery in the area around Deer in Aberdeenshire. 53779030_1610023523819938_r.jpeg
