The Secrets of Higgins Neuk

Talk organised by the Friends of the Smith in aid of the Stirling Smith.

Elinor Graham, a coastal archaeologist from the University of St Andrews and the SCAPE Trust, will talk about the hidden history of Higgins Neuk, which lies on the Forth between Airth and the Clackmannanshire Bridge.

The project, which was part of the Inner Forth Landscape Initiative, investigated the possibility that this area was the site of King James IV’s royal dockyard, where some of the biggest ships in Europe were maintained and repaired. The King’s flagship, the Great Michael is thought to have docked there before setting off to the Battle of Flodden in 1513.

From the search for a royal dockyard this project developed into a multi-faceted community investigation of a maritime landscape. This talk will present some of the results and examine how this small site represents many of the aspects of the development of the wider Inner Forth estuary.

Monday 25th March 2019 at 7.30pm, doors open at 7pm
Tickets at the door £5 (Friends £4) include tea/coffee and biscuits
