Geography Day at the RSGS

If you're in or around Perth in two weeks' time, on the 24th of June, why not head for the wonderful Royal Scottish Geographical Society's HQ for Geography Day.

Date: Sat 24th June
Timing: 1100-1500
Venue: RSGS HQ, 15-19 North Port, Perth.
Cost: Free to RSGS members
Theme: Archaeology including items pertaining to archaeology and heritage from the collection (presented by the Collections Team) and tales of famous archaeologists linked to RSGS from our Writer-in-Residence. We are also delighted to welcome Diana Murray FRSGS, ex CEO of Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (which became part of Historic Environment Scotland). Diana was also Curator of the RCAHMS Archaeological Record and therefore makes a wonderful addition to our speaker line-up.
After receiving such positive feedback from our previous three Geography Days we will be sticking with the same format to ensure that everybody gets to hear all the talks.
Each of the talks/activities will last around 30 minutes including time for Q&A with a following ten minutes to move between talks. A working timetable is shown below:
1100 – Welcome from Mike Robinson
1130 – 1st talk starts (4 different talks will commence at once for each group to enjoy)
1210 – 2nd talk starts
1250 – Lunch (provided for a small donation)
1330 – 3rd talk starts
1410 – 4th (final) talk starts
1450 – Closing remarks
1500-1530 Opportunity to further explore RSGS Fair Maid’s House Visitor Centre.
