Accompanying the BBC documentary series, writer and broadcaster James Crawford’s talk will be based on his lavishly illustrated book which draws on the vast collection of aerial photography held in the Historic Environment Scotland archives. Opening an extraordinary window into our past this is the remarkable story of a nation from above, showing how our great cities have dramatically altered with the ebb and flow of history, while whole communities have vanished in the name of progress. James reveals how aerial imagery can unearth treasures from the ancient past, and secrets buried right beneath our feet. Come along to get a glorious bird’s-eye view of this story of Scotland, from the sky!
