St Giles’ Files Ep.10: Where is history?

In this episode Stephen tackles the question of historical siting; do objects gain anything from being at the historical site, why are museums important and does being close to history make it more accessible?

This is the Lorimer Communion Table in the Preston Aisle

As you have seen in previous episodes, this is the John Knox Statue

And this is the grotesque mentioned

And finally, Stephen promised a link to the partition screen at the National Museum of Scotland, but there is no image attached to the listing. So, imagine, if you will, a gothic wooden divider. Or follow this link to Canmore and an old black and white photo. https://i.rcahms.gov.uk/canmore/l/DP00301053.jpg
