The Hunterian - book launch
The Old Ways New Roads book launch will take place via a live zoom webinar, featuring an introduction to the publication by Hunterian Director Steph Scholten and the editors, followed by a live discussion with the contributing authors. A live Q&A with the audience will follow.
About Old Ways New Roads - Illustrated with over 200 artworks from public and private collections, the publication explores how an extensive military road and bridge-building programme, initiated by the British crown in 1725, transformed 18th-century Scotland. The laying of these routes opened up the country to soldiers, surveyors and commercial travellers, followed by artists, writers and tourists. A number of acclaimed experts explore how the Scottish landscape was variously documented, evaluated, planned and imagined in words and images
