GCHT are proud to present a special double lecture, in collaboration with the Scotland’s Urban Past team, on the 6th August 2015, 7pm at 54 Bell Street.

About Scotland’s Urban Past: Scotland’s Urban Past (SUP), a joint initiative between the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) and Historic Scotland, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, is an innovative project that will put groups and individuals across Scotland’s towns and cities in charge of recording the history on their doorsteps through capturing memories, investigating buildings and exploring sources of local knowledge.  SUP supports all kinds of projects which help people to explore and celebrate the history of Scotland’s towns and cities. Every project idea stems from a local community. SUP also help to grow these ideas into full community-led projects by offering groups training, access to essential resources and continued project support.

Lecture 1 - Scotland’s Urban Past: Your Town, Your Street, Your Story, Chiara Ronchini                                              

From medieval monuments to skate parks, Chiara Ronchini will provide an introduction to the new nationwide project from Historic Scotland and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments which helps communities throughout Scotland to take the lead in exploring and celebrating the history of Scotland’s towns and cities.
