Event description

Description

Gavin Grant, Collections Team Leader with Fife Cultural Trust, will give an illustrated talk about the fascinating pilgrim badges found in Fife in recent years. These metal badges were worn by pilgrims when they reached their destination in St Andrews and at other pilgrimage sites. The talk will also shed light on other medieval finds in Fife that are now in museum collections.

Gavin Grant has worked in museums for over 30 years, much of that time in Fife. He is the Collections Team Leader for Fife Cultural Trust and manages a team of Curators who care for a wide range of objects held at the new Collections Centre in Glenrothes. Objects held there range from medieval items and fine art to social and industrial objects from the 19th and 20th centuries. The latter include Wemyss Ware pottery and linoleum made in Kirkcaldy.

There is a lift giving access to all parts of the building.

This event is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
