As of a couple days ago, all of ExSoc’s 2020 expeditions have been cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19. While these news are extremely unfortunate, it was the most sensible decision for all expeditions in order to minimize pressure on rural communities in Scotland and their host countries, and avoid infection during travel. Some expedition teams will be aiming to keep their current team together throughout next year and realize their original plans in the summer of 2021, while others will be looking for new teams in fall.
ExSoc is following University of Glasgow’s and the Exploration Council’s guidance regarding fieldwork and travel, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, we have updated the Achievements page with available reports from 2019 expeditions and welcome you to browse other reports from past expeditions.
