Rising sea levels due to climate change are having substantial impacts on Neolithic, Norse, and Medieval archaeological sites in Orkney, an island chain north of Scotland.    The Scotland Coastal Heritage at Risk Project (SCHARP) which is managed by the SCAPE Trust at the University of St. Andrews has already trained over 1000 persons to monitor, report and mitigate   sites that are threatened.  The Orkadian newspaper  in Kirkwall frequently runs articles about these sites and the measures taken to  preserve their archaeological records.
