On the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, the Scottish Civic Trust’s Doors Open Days is working in partnership with North of England Civic Trust (NECT), the UK Co-ordinator of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, to tour an exhibition across Scotland through the month of September 2018.

The touring exhibition will come to venues along the Antonine Wall:

  • Callendar House, Falkirk 11th to 16th September
  • Library of Innerpeffrey, Crieff 19th to 23rd September
  • Cramond Kirk and Hall, Maltings Museum, Cramond 25th to 29th September
  • Cramond Kirk, Family Celebration Event Saturday 29th September 1pm-4pm

The exhibition focuses on the historical zone that spans Europe and 1,900 years of history. Designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, it recognises the significance of how an era of profound civilisation shaped the Europe we know today.

As a frontier aligning all in its path – places, people – it brought order and established a symbolic definition of the reach of civilisation, but as a contemporary zone crossing the continent and beyond, it now  connects communities in a way unlike any other.
