Scottish Identity Illustrated Through Scottish Silver

Colin T Fraser FSA Scot, R. L. Christie Works of Art will give an evening lecture on 24 April, in association with the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland - 7.30pm, Regent Building Lecture Theatre, Aberdeen University. Open to the public - all welcome.

Since the seminal exhibition ‘Silver; Made in Scotland’ held by the National Museum of Scotland in 2008 there has been a greater appreciation and understanding of the Scottish Goldsmiths craft.

Many new discoveries have been made and new light has been shed on previously well-known pieces.

The talk on 24 April 2018 - The Scottish identity - as illustrated through recent discoveries in Scottish silver aims to illustrate and discuss these new finds while placing them in a context of the wider survival of the Scottish applied arts and cultural landscape they were created.
