RCAHMS Centenary Workshops

As one element in RCAHMS' celebration of our first hundred years a series of four research workshops is being held in 2007-8. The RCAHMS Centenary Workshops will explore important aspects of Scottish culture and society where RCAHMS can contribute significantly to the public understanding of national cultural identity in collaboration with a wide range of institutions across Scotland.

Attendance at these workshops is by invitation only. Following each workshop a related online discussion forum will be launched; contributions are invited from anyone who would like to participate.
