Abstract

The Hunterian at the University of Glasgow are holding an exhibition "Scottish Gold" (14.3.14 - 15.6.14)and also publishing a book of the same name to accompany the exhibition.
This book is the first comprehensive look at the use of gold in Scotland from prehistoric times to the present day. It guides the reader through the natural history of gold to how we have used gold in the past and use it now in the present, as well as looking at the history of gold use in Scotland from the earliest recorded discovery of gold in Scotland in 1245 and the first use of gold coinage in Scotland to pay a king’s ransom in about 1357, to the Darien disaster of the late 1600s and beyond.
