The Hunterian’s major exhibition Old Ways New Roads: Travels in Scotland 1720-1832, will launch online in May 2021, featuring paintings, prints, drawings, maps and more, addressing the impact of Scotland’s new transport infrastructure on the development of travel, tourism and topographical descriptions between 1720 and 1832. Old Ways New Roads will take users on a journey around many of Scotland’s best-known locations, following in the footsteps of 18th-century travellers.
Join us for the Old Ways New Roads Talk Series, held on Tuesdays at 1pm via Zoom. Talks will be 10-15 minutes long with time for questions afterwards. Details at https://www.gla.ac.uk/hunterian/visit/exhibitions/virtualexhibitions/oldwaysnewroads/
