The cost is £120 for the two days with discounts for pensioners, students and Friends of Historic Scotland. The speakers, many directly involved in the project, will cover topics from tapestries to courtly life, from sculpture to archaeology, from international comparisons to the local details of Stirling itself. And John Donaldson, creater of the new Stirling Heads will also be there and is certain to be fascinating and entertaining.
So, this looks like a good way to find out more, to pester the researchers with quibbles and to meet others who are also interested.
