I'm trying to track down information on the late 19th century
Scottish antiquarian John Abercromby for a story I'm researching on
Sassanian-era fortifications in the
Caucuses. It turns out Abercromby's four week trip to the region in
the 1880s resulted in the single best description of the site,
published in the 1890 Scottish Geographical Magazine.
I'm interested in finding out what institutions might hold his
papers, in hopes that his notes from the trip might hold some gems
both for my story and the Daghestani archaeologists surveying the
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks very much,
