Subject: Re: [BRITARCH] Scotland's Global impact - conference announcement
Your email reminded me about an enquiry we had recently regarding any gun-pits that might have been excavated around Scotland to accommodate "disappearing guns", specifically those of Alexander Moncrieff's design. I thought you might know. I must admit that I haven't yet asked David Caldwell, but it a bit outside his period.
Do you know of any? Or of anyone that might know? I certainly can't see anything on the RCAHMS database.

Subject: [BRITARCH] Scotland's Global impact - conference announcement
International Scottish history
October more than 30 leading historians from half-a-dozen countries will come together in Inverness to discuss, debate and argue about Scotland's contribution to the wider world. The Scotland's Global Impact Conference is a key component of the Highland Homecoming fortnight.
Scotland's Global Impact, to be opened by First Minister Alex Salmond and chaired by the BBC's Lesley Riddoch, promises to be exciting, entertaining and educational.
Speakers include Professor Eric Richards, Adelaide-based author of the controversial book Patrick Sellar and the Highland Clearances, and award winning Professor Ferenc Szasz, who will travel from the University of New Mexico to discuss the connected lives of Robert Burns and Abraham Lincoln.
They'll be joined by battlefield archaeologist Dr Tony Pollard; Professor Graeme Morton, Chair of Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph in Ontario; Professor James Hunter CBE, Director of UHI Centre of History; The University of Aberdeen's Dr Marjory Harper; and singer songwriter Dr Margaret Bennett among many others.
This unprecedented event will reveal much about the people of Scotland, exploring why they left their country over many centuries and unravelling the huge impact this small nation has made on the rest of our planet.
Scotland's Global Impact takes place at Eden Court Theatre and Culloden Battlefield from Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 October. You can book per day or for all three and, as you'll be in Inverness during the Highland Homecoming celebrations, there will be plenty going on by day and night.
Early bird rate is available until the end of June if you book now. 35 per day and 100 for all three (normal rate 50 and 150). Discounts available for group bookings.
