Old Ways New Roads: Travels in Scotland 1720-1832, The Hunterian’s major new exhibition will be moving online in the coming weeks. To celebrate, we are hosting a series of weekly talks featuring the people who worked on the exhibition and the authors who contributed towards the publication. Talks will be 10-15 minutes long and will be followed by question time. The zoom links will be made available each week on the Old Ways New Roads page on the Hunterian website.

Old Ways New Roads, both the exhibition and the publication, takes us on a journey around many of Scotland’s best-known locations, following in the footsteps of 18th-century travellers.
