If The Walls Could Talk: Investigating the 18th Century Smoke Drawings At Berwick Barracks

Join us for a family-friendly YouTube live event which will investigate the smoke drawings created by soldiers living in Berwick Barracks in the 18th century.

on Friday 18th September 2020 at 17:00

During this YouTube live event, viewers will take part in a digital investigation of Berwick Barracks smoke drawings. Guided by the panel - Senior Collections Curator, Kevin Booth, and Youth Participation Officer, Fiona Clapperton, both from English Heritage and Jane Miller, Flodden Young Archaeologist Club Leader and Learning Officer for Archaeology Scotland - they will learn about their origins and consider what they can tell us about the lives of the soldiers living in the barracks in the C18th. They will also get to hear about the exciting work undertaken by the Flodden Young Archaeologists' Club earlier this year, when members learned about the history of the drawings and then created animation footage from their own modern interpretations of the artwork. Viewers will have front row seats to the premier to the short documentary film produced about the project, which includes the animations created by the club's members. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions to the panel at the end of the session.
