Our appreciation of the past relies heavily on the survival of stone monuments, buildings and landscape features. They shape our sense of place and identity. This Framework aims to link, inspire, mobilize and direct the efforts of anyone with an interest in carved stone monuments in Scotland.
The first of our regional research frameworks, funded by Historic Environment Scotland and made in collaboration with Kilmartin Museum, is available here.

The Scottish Network for Nineteenth-Century European Cultures Framework (SNNEC) explores the inter-connectivity of people and culture in Scotland and Europe during the long nineteenth century to draw out a holistic understanding of the value and significance of Scotland’s relationships with European ‘nations-in-the-making’.
