Dr Ann MacSween and Dr Kirsty Millican, two of our experts in Neolithic archaeology, present a lecture on Scotland’s Age of Stone. This talk explores the different types of monuments which can still be found in northern and southern Scotland, how to recognise them, and how we use this archaeological evidence to build a picture of the life of early farming communities. They also talk about the work we do to protect such ancient monuments, and explain how you can get involved in looking after Scotland’s Neolithic archaeology.

A Journey Through Scotland's Past: This Age

If you think archaeology today is just about digging up old bones and buildings, you need to watch this!

Dr Alex Hale will coax you into the archaeological present, with examples that break the mould with the past. He considers how archaeology has changed from something that only looks at the past, to a subject that considers the present day through an archaeological lens.

Then, to end our journey through Scotland's past, Dr Kirsty Owen looks at Scotland's Archaeology Strategy and how the leading bodies in Scotland are working together to provide more opportunities to discover, care for, promote and enjoy our rich and diverse heritage.

A Journey Through Scotland's Past: Age of Industry

Traditional Skills & Materials Project Manager Ali Davey and Deputy Head of Industrial Heritage Mark Watson present a lecture on Scotland's fascinating industrial heritage in two parts.

Part one, 'On the early 20th Century blacksmithing firm of Thomas Hadden', tells the tale of a prolific producer of architectural wrought ironwork during the early 20th Century. Their style, with trademark motifs such as birds and berries, was distinctive and perfectly suited to the tastes of Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau designers. This talk looks at their design inspirations and how their style influenced the work they produced for customers.

Part two is called 'Industrial architecture: adaptable resource'. In it, Mark Watson posits that heritage is about the future, not the past. The best possible use for a building may not have been thought of yet, but the endless variety of options may be confidently tested on robust industrial buildings that resonate with innate meaning and potential for sustainable use.

The True Story of How the Scots Invented the Modern World & Everything In It (2002)

The Scottish Enlightenment (Scots: Scots Enlichtenment, Scottish Gaelic: Soillseachadh na h-Alba) was the period in 18th and early 19th century Scotland characterised by an outpouring of intellectual and scientific accomplishments. By the eighteenth century, Scotland had a network of parish schools in the Lowlands and four universities. The Enlightenment culture was based on close readings of new books, and intense discussions took place daily at such intellectual gathering places in Edinburgh as The Select Society and, later, The Poker Club as well as within Scotland's ancient universities (St Andrews, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen).

Sharing the humanist and rationalist outlook of the European Enlightenment of the same time period, the thinkers of the Scottish Enlightenment asserted the importance of human reason combined with a rejection of any authority that could not be justified by reason. In Scotland, the Enlightenment was characterised by a thoroughgoing empiricism and practicality where the chief values were improvement, virtue, and practical benefit for the individual and society as a whole.

Among the fields that rapidly advanced were philosophy, political economy, engineering, architecture, medicine, geology, archaeology, law, agriculture, chemistry and sociology. Among the Scottish thinkers and scientists of the period were Francis Hutcheson, David Hume, Adam Smith, Dugald Stewart, Thomas Reid, Robert Burns, Adam Ferguson, John Playfair, Joseph Black and James Hutton.

The Scottish Enlightenment had effects far beyond Scotland, not only because of the esteem in which Scottish achievements were held outside Scotland, but also because its ideas and attitudes were carried all over Europe and across the Atlantic world as part of the Scottish diaspora, and by European and American students who studied in Scotland.

The Scottish dramatist Robert McLellan (1907-1985) wrote a number of full-length stage comedies which give a self-conscious representation of Edinburgh at the height of the Scottish enlightenment, most notably The Flouers o Edinburgh (1957). These plays include references to many of the figures historically associated with the movement and satirise various social tensions, particularly in the field of spoken language, between traditional society and anglicised Scots who presented themselves as exponents of so-called 'new manners'. Other later examples include Young Auchinleck (1962), a stage portrait of the young James Boswell, and The Hypocrite (1967) which draws attention to conservative religious reaction in the country that threatened to check enlightenment trends. McLellan's picture of these tensions in national terms is complex, even-handed and multi-faceted.

Scotland: Rome's Final Frontier (2012, 1080p)

Archaeologist Dr Fraser Hunter looks back on three centuries of contact and conflict with the Roman invaders. The first Tay Bridge, the first depiction of tartan and forgotten Roman camps that once held thirty-five thousand men. A story of a superpower pitted against tribesmen and warlords, and one with fascinating modern parallels.

National Geographic - America Before Columbus

History books traditionally depict the pre-Columbus Americas as a pristine wilderness where small native villages lived in harmony with nature. But scientific evidence tells a very different story: When Columbus stepped ashore in 1492, millions of people were already living there. America wasn't exactly a New World, but a very old one whose inhabitants had built a vast infrastructure of cities, orchards, canals and causeways.

Wild History: Journey to the Iron Age

Your school can travel back in time to the ancient past of the Iron Age Celts with our Wild History sessions which give Key Stage 2 pupils an inspiring, engaging and educational experience as they live as Celts for the day. We travel to schools across Wales and North West England. If you would like to know more about how you van get a Wild History session at your own school or event then visit

This video chronicles a magical week spent in North Wales bringing a roundhouse to life as school children took on all the many tasks needed for daily life in the village. Kids learned by doing, being fully immersed in the sights, sounds and smells of the Iron Age.

With our Wild History school sessions, the past leaps off the page and comes alive.

We also host Wild History sessions for the Viking & Saxon age.

Support us on Patreon to make more videos like this, get exclusive content and learn all about nature and our connection to it. It would also make us very happy!

Thanks to Follow Films for producing this beautiful video. Also thanks to the community of Rhosesmor without whom we wouldn't have been invited to take part in this week long event and work with these school children.
