• The Scottish identity

  • 24 April 19:30 - 20:30
  • The Scottish identity - as illustrated through recent discoveries in Scottish silver

    Free evening lecture in association with Society of Antiquaries of Scotland

    Since the seminal exhibition ‘Silver; Made in Scotland’ held by the National Museum of Scotland in 2008 there has been a greater appreciation and understanding of the Scottish Goldsmiths craft. Since this time many new discoveries have been made and new light has been shed on previously well-known pieces. This talk aims to illustrate and discuss these new finds while placing them in a context of the wider survival of the Scottish applied arts and cultural landscape they were created.
