Edible Archaeology: Rhynie Woman

1 min read

In the summer of 2013, the artist collaborative  ‘Rhynie Woman’ received a grant  from the Huntly Cultural Fund to provide  a pop-up hub with a coffee and souvenir  shop and community museum, to run  alongside the Rhynie excavations [see  feature on p.22]. We wanted to engage the  locals, entice tourists, and nourish the diggers,  so among our archaeological-themed  goodies were radiocarbon date squares, and  (pictured) the Rhynie gingerbread Man,  which was made using a cookie-cutter created  by the Scottish Sculpture Workshop.
