Lecture by Dr Claire Hawes FSA Scot, University of Aberdeen
Following the digital transcription of Aberdeen’s earliest burgh council registers by a project at the University of Aberdeen, this lecture will give an overview of the corpus. It will focus on the importance of these books for our understanding of early Renaissance Scotland, and introduce some of the intriguing characters and interesting stories we have uncovered along the way.
