March 8, 18:00-19:00 (UK time)
In this talk (delivered online via Zoom), Susan Morrison will shine a light on several Scottish women (from the 1700s to 1900s) who, against all odds, achieved great things for the many.
A lecture brought to you by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and the Scottish History Society, on and in celebration of International Women’s Day.
Susan Morrison is a writer, comedian and broadcaster. She is the presenter of BBC Radio Scotland’s history magazine programme ‘Time Travels’, and is also the chair of ‘Previously …. Scotland’s History Festival’. She often says she works in comedy, but lives in history. She’s particularly keen on exploring the lesser known histories and heritage of the overlooked in Scotland’s past.

This event is brought to you in collaboration with the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, the oldest antiquarian society in Scotland. Founded in 1780 to provide an independent forum for the study, conservation and enjoyment of Scotland’s past, today the Society is an independent charitable organisation (charity registration no. SC010440) and consists of over 2,600 members (called Fellows). Fellows have a range of interests, are inspired by the past and champion the Society’s commitment to research excellence, to discussion and to the sharing of knowledge on Scotland’s history, heritage and archaeology.
The Society continues to help to translate Scotland’s rich heritage for wider contemporary audiences, highlighting the importance of past and new research. We do this by publishing high-quality books and peer-reviewed papers, by supporting independent research, providing awards and grants each year, and by running public lectures and conference programmes featuring leading experts.
