We Love History Live

Selected dates until Thursday 24 September 2020

HES YouTube Channel

Join the weekly livestream Q&As on our HES Youtube channel.

The topics change every week. Questions at the ready folks!

On Thursday 9 July, join architectural historian and author Simon Green to learn about how we research, record and understand buildings with a focus on the history of Dumfries House. Hear about one of Britain's most beautiful country houses and discover some of the stories that lie behind the glorious images in our Great Scottish Interiors online exhibition.

Our building records come from a process of learning and understanding – examining how a building was designed and built, how it has changed and how it is used by people. This journey, supported with evidence and research, is documented in Simon’s book about the unique Dumfries House in Ayrshire.

All of our livestreams are recorded and available to watch at your leisure.
