On-line Publication of the Transactions
The Council of the Society has taken the decision to upload files of the Transactions onto this website when five years have elapsed since their publication. This is to inform copyright holders of our intention to make digital versions of their work available on-line. Anyone with concerns about their copyright material being reproduced in this way should contact the Editor by e-mail.
The Galloway Picts Project
To mark the 150th anniversary of the founding of the society, DGNHAS undertook an excavation of the Dark Age stronghold at Trusty Hill just outside Gatehouse of Fleet, between 19 May and 2 June 2012. For a progress report of how the dig went, visit the project's website.
