An evening lecture in association with University of Aberdeen Museums and Special Collections and Society of Antiquaries of Scotland

Following the digital transcription of Aberdeen’s earliest burgh council registers by a project at the University of Aberdeen, this lecture will give an overview of the corpus. It will focus on the importance of these books for our understanding of early Renaissance Scotland, and introduce some of the intriguing characters and interesting stories we have uncovered along the way.

This lecture is joint with the Scottish History Society.
