A log of everything I’ve found out about local history and archaeology, particularly focusing on Lanarkshire, but also anything that interests me really :-).

As with all research, there’s plenty of opportunities to get things wrong. If you do see a mistake, please let me know so I can put it right. I’ll also come back and edit an entry if it doesn’t sound right when I read it, but I’ll always try to keep the sense of the story the same, and note major revisions.

My thanks to everyone who’s ever shared their stories with me, whether online or in person. If you have any additional  information about any of the topics listed I’d be delighted to hear from you :-).
