[POSTPONED] Loose Ends

Monday 20 April 2020

HES Archives and Library

Capelrig Cross

In light of updated Scottish Government advice regarding Coronavirus we have taken the decision to close public access to our staffed properties and our events have been postponed until further notice.

Govan Old Parish Church houses the third biggest assemblage of Early Medieval sculpture in Scotland.

Despite a major research conference in the early 1990s, the Govan Stones and associated school of sculpture is still not as well known as it should be. 

John Borland, from Historic Environment Scotland's Survey and Recording team, has recorded the whole collection in Govan Old Parish Church and much of its associated school. In this talk, John will share the results of his recent survey.

Following the talk join us in the Search Room and view original archive material.
