Aberdeenshire Council Archaeology Service
Aberdeenshire Council Archaeology Service (ACAS) not only provide a service for Aberdeenshire Council, but also for The Moray Council, Angus Council and Aberdeen City Council areas.
ACAS has the role of locating, evaluating, safeguarding, and interpreting all archaeological sites within these four Council areas. This information is held in the Sites & Monuments Record, which is publicly accessible online.
We also assess all planning applications submitted to Aberdeenshire, Moray, Angus and Aberdeen City Councils and advise when archaeological mitigation is required, as well as providing information, advice and guidance on SRDP, forestry schemes and utilities work.
