Scotland the Brave—Underground
The Museum of the Albemarle will host a History for Lunch on Wednesday, August 7 at 12:15 p.m. Martha Williams, museum volunteer and former archeologist, will present a program about the archaeological remains left by the people who lived within the present country of Scotland. The tour begins with the Late Stone age, 14,000 years ago, extends through the Roman and Viking invasions, and ends with the archaeology of World Wars I and II. Along the way we will visit Scotland's Outer Islands––the Hebrides, the Orkneys, and the Shetlands––as well as castles, cairns, and sites on the Scottish mainland. Bring your lunch and join the discussion, MOA will provide the beverages.
