Amorous Couples, Place Names and Steampunk: conversations about old estate maps and how to make them dance!

Who?: Chris Fleet of the NLS, and more locally, Alverie Weighill, Michael Ansell and Archie McConnel will deliver lecturettes while Graham Roberts (ex-archivist for D+G) and Alan Gibbs (geologist extraordinaire) while help decipher our older maps.

What?: This will be a laid back evening of nattering about old maps and about topics that are of interest to the speakers…and hopefully you. We will be wandering from maps of Gretna and then up some good Galloway hills while contemplating what we don’t call things and what isn’t there. To set this all off we have Chris Fleet of the NLS telling us about the latest updates from the NLS which will include 3D and Lidar…your historical researches will never be quite the same again!

This is a hybrid event will take place at Galloway Glens Zoom Room and at Balmaclellan Smiddy. Booking via our website.
