History: Reconstructed

Want to know how to embark on a step-by-step investigation of the architectural and social history of a place? Then join the Scotland’s Urban Past team for a single day’s workshop using documentary resources to uncover the story of a place through time.

Using four Scottish urban case studies – Aberdeen, Jedburgh, Kirkwall and Port Glasgow -  the workshop will guide you through an interactive journey using maps, drawings and a wide range of other historical documents to give you the confidence to use archives for your own research projects.

This course is 100% FREE and will be tailored to suit everyone from experienced researchers to those with little or no previous experience.

Places are limited to 16 persons per course and applications will be assessed according to criteria outlined on the application form. Successful applicants will be notified no less than 10 days prior to the event.

Please note, a photographer may be present at Scotland's Urban Past events and the images may be used for promotional purposes.

***Free lunch and refreshments will be provided***
