First World War Centenary Study Day

‘Researching the Impact of the First World War on the Highlands and Islands’, Friday 10 March, 2017, Highland Archive Centre, Inverness

Dr Iain Robertson, one of the Centre’s Co-Directors, recently helped to organise and run a public event about researching the impact of the First World War on the Highlands and Islands. Iain also gave a talk during the day about ‘Land Legacies: the enduring impact of the First World War on Highland land issue’.

The event itself proved a great success, with just under 100 people attending the talks and workshops. The conference received good media coverage, including a section on BBC Alba’s An Lá (where, according to the ever-modest Iain, ‘I spouted on about the legacy of post-WW1 land invasions!).
