This interdisciplinary project was featured as part of the Practicing Landscape exhibition at The Lighthouse, Glasgow, 25.01-22.03.2020, one of a number of projects initiated by the Reading Landscape Research Group at The Glasgow School of Art. The project brings together researchers from GSA and Historic Environment Scotland to explore place through an interdisciplinary methodology which deploys archaeological fieldwork, site writing and practice-as-writing (drawing, photography, video and audio recordings) alongside participatory group work, spoken word and performance. This has resulted in a community workshop, a contribution to the Tomintoul and Glenlivet Landscape Partnership Oral History Project archive, and a conference presentation.
