Public Lecture, Falkirk: Geology and landscapes; the William Wallace story

4 September 2021 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

- Free

The geology of Scotland is incredibly diverse for a country of its size. From rugged mountains, major tectonic upheaval and ancient volcanoes, to enormous river systems and tropical seas – our rocks span a time period of over 3 billion years. Join geologist Dr Katie Strang as she discusses how Scotland’s rich geological heritage underpins our landscape, and how it ultimately influenced the routes and settlements chosen by William Wallace throughout his life.

This in-person talk will run twice, at 11:00am and 12:30pm, lasting around 15 mins with an opportunity for questions and discussion after.

This talk is part of a wider weekend event hosted by The Society of John De Graeme at the Friends of Yes Unit in Callendar Square Shopping Centre, Falkirk. The Society are hosting their Scottish Wars of Independence Exhibition with living history, demos, weapon displays and talks. There will also be a public consultation with artist Chris Rutterford on the Battle of Falkirk 1298 mural that is planned for the Thornhill community centre, next to the Sir John De Graeme memorial fountain.

Drop-in, no booking required.
