Unforgotten Highland Women
A jewel thief, a witch, a doctor and an inspirational teacher are just some of the stories of incredible Highland women revealed from museum archives. Unforgotten Highland Women is a short podcast series, recorded at live events across the Highlands of Scotland, about remarkable local women. Podcaster, Pauline Moore of Big Light, with help from our good selves, was commissioned by Museums and Heritage Highland to deliver this fascinating and enjoyable series. Leave yourself time though, you will want to listen to all of them!
Highland Objects Podcasts
Some incredible podcasts looking at just some of the wealth of fascinating objects held in Highlands and Islands museums. Listeners were given the chance to vote on a selection of objects and choose which stories they wanted to hear. Pictish carvings to the mystery of a trepanned skull an the Buddo, the whalebone figure discovered at Skara Brae and dating back to at least 2400BC. This project was made possible by XpoNorth and our friends at Museums and Heritage Highlands.
