Scotland's Urban Past project gets HLF funding

The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historic Monuments of Scotland has announced that a new initiative called Scotland's Urban Past has received first round Heritage Lottery Funding of £1.65 million, including £55,000 for development work. The project, a follow up to that on Scotland's rural environment, will be a volunteer based initiative within 60 of the country's urban communities to understand the evolution of such locations.
