Palaeography Workshop

Alison Diamond.

Alison will lead a hands on workshop on “Secretary Hand”, the old style of writing that was used in the earlier Kirk Session Records. We will learn about the different scripts, identify the different characters and some of the essential words that are common throughout the texts of the period.

Alison is the Archivist for the Argyll Papers - the family and estate archive of the Campbell family, earls and dukes of Argyll at Inveraray Castle. Her responsibilities are the preservation and development of the archive. She also manages access to the archive.

Before Inveraray, Alison worked as a Curatorial Officer for the National Records of Scotland. Alison has also worked for the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (Project Manager. A Union for a’ That), for Access to Mineral Heritage and for Unilever plc.

The Zoom invitation will be sent to those who have booked at 6.00 am on Friday 2nd September. If you do not receive your invitation at that time please contact
