National Museums Scotland has been awarded a grant by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to conduct a £1million research project into the Galloway Hoard, one of the most important UK archaeological finds of the century.
Glasgow Researchers have created a database which reveals the stories of enslaved people who escaped their captivity in 18th century Britain. This transformative research has inspired the creation of educational resources, films, plays and a graphic novel, and helped inspire the University to embark on a programme of reparative justice.
£2m of Arts and Humanities Research Council funding has underpinned years of painstaking scholarship by University of Glasgow academics into the works of Robert Burns. By 2024, this research will culminate in a new, ten volume edition of Burns' entire works.
