GUARD (Glasgow University Archaeological Research Division) undertook the excavations at Hilton, Easter Ross in 2001 when the lower portion of the Hilton of Cadboll Pictish cross-slab was re-discovered and lifted from the ground for conservation. Thousands of fragments of the original Pictish carving were also retrieved from the site and have been analysed in an attempt to reconstruct the missing cross-face.

June 2016: Sanctioning Memory: Changing Identity. Using 3D laser scanning to identify two 'new' portraits of the Emperor Nero in English antiquarian collections
