Couples, Coins & Coffins: Archaeology, Storytelling & the Glencoe Landscape
December 6th at 6pm
Glencoe is rich not just in history, archaeology and scenery but in stories – and stories are how people explain their place in the world. Houses, glens, roads, and mountains all have their stories, and so do ordinary household objects like pots and coins. In this talk, Dr Given will tell some local stories and show how they help us to understand what places and houses meant to the people who lived in them.
