For the latest headlines about the Rosemarkie Caves Project...



Podcaster Michael Holm, who originally grew up in Hillockhead, recorded a programme down at cave 2B in October with James McComas, Bob Jones and Rosemary Jones of the Rosemarkie Caves Project. The podcast, entitled Brutal UNSOLVED Pictish Murder, has already achieved very impressive viewing figures (95,000 on YouTube as of December 2023). It can be seen below and is also available via Itunes and Spotify.

We are very pleased that our find from 2016, and the project in general, continues to generate such interest. Many thanks to Michael for approaching us and putting the programme together.

Journalist Chie Kelly has also written an article on Rosemarkie Man that was published in November 2023, and it is in Japanese! Chie interviewed James from the project after approaching us earlier in the year. You can read it here -  https://serai.jp/tour/1159485.

Finally, in November 2023, NOSAS hosted a screening and discussion evening on the Rosemarkie Man TV programme Ancient Murders Unearthed. You can see the video of the Q and A session, featuring several members of the RCP team, below.
