DINGWALL MUSEUM BOOK GROUP in the LIBRARY

TUESDAY 25th June 2024 at 2:00-4:00pm

While there are many books that have elements of Dingwall's long and exciting history--see the listing elsewhere on this website--Norman Macrae's Romance of a Royal Burgh is the only attempt so far to gather the stories together. It was a hundred years old last year!

These chapters cover the earlier centuries of Pictish and Norse domination and lead into the Scots. The Earls of Ross had their castle here, fragments still stand. Battles were fought in the area or because of our power base: Battle of Dingwall, the Park, even Bluidy Harlaw.

Count the centres of faith in the town to know that the ecclesiastical history of the country has Dingwall prominent in the big picture 

Before 25th June read a section of the book, the two chapters on Clan Feuds and Social Conditions. And on the day come together in the Library to discuss what we’ve read.

The Library has several reference copies you can read on site.

Each meeting we’ll read a section of the book before we come together in the Library to discuss what we’ve read. 

The Library has several copies of the book to read on site beforehand. Or you can find pdf copies here:  https://1drv.ms/f/s!AghLXhpbwJvn3wEGw9Vryhoz_V57?e=z8hw3D.

 

We have a new Collections Officer!

Starting with us on Monday 1st April

Our new Collections Officer will be providing recommendations on aspects of our collection, helping museum volunteers undertake an audit of it all, migrating information from our old cataloguing system AdLib to cloud-based Axiell, and training volunteers in auditing and basic conservation.
