PROGRAMME for ANNUAL DAMP Evening and AGM 2015
Alteration to Programme below:
Unfortunately Jane Brown will not now be with us for the DAMP evening but Dr Kirsteen Mulhern has been kind enough to step in at the relatively last minute. She will talk about ‘Old Maps for New Purposes’. This will be a whistle-stop tour through some of the National Records of Scotland’s maps and plans collection with particular reference to 18th century maps of the Dumfriesshire area. She will give some context to the creation of these and also look at how these plans are being used by historians and researchers today to answer questions that the authors of the maps probably never considered.
