The caves are set to feature on the Fife episode of Channel 4’s Britain at Low Tide this Saturday evening (31st March).
The popular Channel 4 documentary series will broadcast a Fife-based edition this week as the final episode of its second season, highlighting coastal archaeology in the East Neuk and Levenmouth area.
Filming took place last year, with participation and interviews from SWACS.
Chair of SWACS, Mike Arrowsmith, commented:
“We were delighted to get the chance to show off the precious archaeology in this part of Fife, and the work we do to keep it safe for the future. We hope it will encourage more people to come out here to have a look for themselves.”
Joanna Hambly from the SCAPE Trust commented:
“Being on Britain at Low Tide will bring this amazing site to a much wider audience. These are exciting times for research at the Wemyss Caves. It is one of only a handful of sites that has Pictish carvings and the archaeological evidence of the people who carved them, which we hope to investigate further over the coming months.”
