Landscape Legacies of the early Ordnance Survey (OS) in the Highlands of Scotland

Heritage Hub @ QUB has partnered with Archaeology for Communities in the Highlands (ARCH) to run online community heritage workshops on the landscape legacies of the early Ordnance Survey (OS) in the Highlands of Scotland.

The first of these workshops, led by Prof Keith Lilley (QUB) and Susan Kruse (ARCH), took place on January 25th, exploring online web-mapping resources for 'virtually' searching out the archaeological remains of the 'principal trigonometrical survey', led by Thomas Colby in the 1820s. The first workshop on 'Mapping Monuments' is now available to watch online and a follow-up workshop is planned later in February to set out plans for a new community heritage project to take the work further and follow in the footsteps of the OS surveyors of two hundred years ago. For more information please contact Prof Lilley (k.lilley@qub.ac.uk).
