Early Medieval Routes Around Scotland study day
Canberra

This study day presents findings from two experiential research activities:  a walk from Dunkeld to Iona and a sailing trip from the Firth of Clyde to Oban and back.  Both sought to explore routes which might have been used by early medieval religious people.  The aim was to test the viability of theoretical routes, and also to better understand the experience of the early medieval traveller.  In this lavishly illustrated study day, we will follow the routes taken during the two expeditions, and discuss the insights gained as a result.
