PAST EVENT: Highland Archaeology Festival: Using Online Resources

At this free workshop, you'll learn how to use online resources to investigate and share information about places in Scotland's towns and cities.

Saturday, October 1, 2016 - 10:00 to 12:30

The Bike Shed, 23 Grant Street, Inverness, IV3 8BN

This free morning workshop on Saturday 1 October will introduce you to using online resources to investigate and share information about places in Scotland's towns and cities. 

You'll learn how to become an Urban Detective - a member of the public who researches Scotland’s towns and cities, discovering hidden stories of everyday places and contributing their knowledge to the Historic Environment Scotland archive.

For the best experience, we recommend you bring something to contribute. This could be memories of a place, a digital photograph of the house you grew up in, or family history facts about places your grandparents worked.


Suitable for heritage newcomers. Familiarity with the internet is required. 

Wheelchair accessible. Children welcome with adults.
