Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS: An interest in the history of Edinburgh. The course itinerary will be sent to enrolled students prior to the course start date. OVERVIEW / INTRODUCTION TO COURSE: Like most old settlements, Edinburgh’s Old Town grew organically as the population increased; by contrast the elegant streets of the New Town were laid out from the late 18th century. We will explore where these settlements were built, when, and why – and talk about some of the characters involved. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: Tutor led walks with stops for information. WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: Why and when the areas were built, and by whom. RESOURCES / ADDITIONAL COSTS REQUIRED BY STUDENTS: Pen and paper if they want to make notes. Refreshments if they wish – otherwise bring something themselves. HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES: Bring own materials, hand wash, food, wipes for surfaces etc. WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF BAD WEATHER: Go ahead unless extreme.
