Event Details

Professor Viccy Coltman, History of Art, University of Edinburgh

In this illustrated talk, Professor Viccy Coltman will offer new and existing readers an introduction to using the resources of the National Records of Scotland and National Register of Archives for Scotland for the purposes of academic research. Drawing on her experience of writing a cultural history of Scotland from the mid-eighteenth century to the 1830s, she will give us a ‘worm’s eye’ view of her craft that will include some discoveries, low points and ‘tricks of the trade’.

To book, please visit: Attendees can also turn up on the day and any remaining spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
