March Lecture – “Ahead of Their Time”: A Talk in Celebration of International Women’s Day

8th March 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


In this talk (delivered online via Zoom) Susan Morrison will shine a light on several Scottish women (from the 1700s to 1900s) who, against all odds, achieved great things for the many.

A lecture brought to you by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland in collaboration with the Scottish History Society, on and in celebration of International Women’s Day.

Susan Morrison is a writer, comedian, and broadcaster. She is the presenter of BBC Radio Scotland’s history magazine programme ‘Time Travels’, and is also the chair of ‘Previously….Scotland’s History Festival’. She often says she works in comedy, but lives in history. She’s particularly keen on exploring the lesser known histories and heritage of the overlooked in Scotland’s past.
