Accessibility Statement

Archaeology Scotland is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

Where possible, this website endeavours to conform to a least the level of Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the Web more user friendly for all people. This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for XHTML and CSS.

The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant XHTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly. Supported browsers include IE7 and above, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.  If you currently use an older version of Internet Explorer be upgrade to a modern browser.  If you are using Firefox, Chrome or Safari, please ensure your browser is up-to-date.

The site provides some of the data spatially using dynamic mapping.  We understand that, while this provides a useful tool for website users, it does not fully solve the problems encountered by sight-impaired users. Where mapping is used we also provide the same datasets in either a list and/or calendar view where the text can be read by screen readers.  With regards to the geographic location of data we provide alternative information such as address details, or coordinates.
