Event Details

Dumfries and Galloway: A Regional Ethnology

European Ethnological Research Centre

In October and November 2016 the EERC is holding a series of 3 events to share with the people of Dumfries and Galloway the results of our joint endeavours.  At these events there will be presentations from those who have contributed to the written side of the Study.  There will also be presentations from those who have conducted recorded interviews of people across D&G.

The presentations will be made by those who have participated in the Study as well as by staff of the EERC and Dumfries and Galloway Libraries, Information and Archives. Those attending will gain an insight into what the written and oral records tell us about the places and people of Dumfries and Galloway.

There will also be an opportunity for those attending to ask questions.
