The first Ancient Monuments came into state care in 1882 – but by that time they were already fixtures on the Scottish tourist scene.
This talk will look at what prompted the state to get involved in ancient monuments. We’ll also explore how many of these sites were already tourist honey-pots in 1790s Scotland – and remain so today!
This event is free to attend, but booking is essential.
