Happening at the Museum in 2023
Couples, Coins and Coffins: Archaeology, Storytelling and the Glencoe Landscape with Dr Michael Given
Join us virtually on Wednesday 6 December at 6pm (UK time) for an online talk.
Glencoe is rich not just in history, archaeology and scenery but in stories – and stories are how people explain their place in the world. Houses, glens, roads, and mountains all have their stories, and so do ordinary household objects like pots and coins. In this talk I will tell some local stories and show how they help us to understand what places and houses meant to the people who lived in them. Many of the structures and artefacts that archaeologists discover do not have stories that have been remembered across the centuries, but part of the role of the archaeologist is to try and tease their stories out of them.
Tickets are £5 via Eventbrite:

We've had several successful talks already including: Susan Fletcher discussing her book 'Witch Light' which uses local history - Corrag the witch and the Glencoe Massacre - as its inspiration; Dr Fraser Hunter of National Museum of Scotland shared his opinion and knowledge on the mysterious Ballachulish Figure; Bob Pegg, storyteller and musician, told us some Scottish folk tales; Susan Kemp sharing 'The Ballachulish Escape' story with us, an incredible tale of three local men who escaped capture by speaking Gaelic; Flora Fraser, historical biographer, who told us about the life of Scottish Jacobite heroine Flora MacDonald; and the 'Clans, conflict and culture during the Middle Ages in Rannoch' talk delivered by Dr MacGregor.
Interested in any of these talks? We have recordings of these events. If you would like access to any of these recordings, you can contact Parris via firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask for a donation of £5 to the Museum.
