Edinburgh's 101 Objects

In celebration of 2017 being Scotland’s year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, a bespoke website has been created and filled with 101 of Edinburgh’s most intriguing treasures.   From the prestigious to the prosaic, each object has a glittering tale to tell. Viewers can sift through their stories online, then visit them in person at locations across the city, exploring the city’s great wealth of history.

To assist rifling such a vast trove, it has been sorted into themes, like ‘City of Innovation’, ‘Arts and Performance’, ‘Everyday Living’ and  ‘On the Dark Side’…

Buried amongst the curiosities are several mementoes of the anniversaries that Edinburgh is celebrating this year: it is 70 years since the city exploded with arts festivals and 250 years since Edinburgh decided to expand with a plan for a New Town, bringing even more riches to plunder.
