Opening Doors to Edinburgh’s New Town’s Past
Thursday 23 September 2021 from 5-6pm
Join Dr Anthony Lewis, Curator of Scottish History for Glasgow Life Museums, on Zoom in this talk hosted by the National Records of Scotland which will focus on some of the possible motivations for enlarging and improving Edinburgh in the first half of the 1700s.
It will refer to HM General Register House itself as a key building in this process and emphasise the importance of using the archives held there in the National Records of Scotland, and elsewhere, to appreciate their contributions to understanding Edinburgh’s people and the city’s institutions at a time of crisis.
